Make Plans for ABA TECHSHOW 2010 in Chicago
By Reid Trautz, Esq.
The 24th edition of ABA TECHSHOW promises to be the best yet when it opens at the Chicago Hilton on March 25, 2010. The world of legal technology is changing rapidly, and all lawyers need to understand the changes to help them more effectively and efficiently help their clients.
ABA TECHSHOW is never the same twice, mainly because technology is always changing. This year is no exception. The rise of social media as a marketing and information tool for lawyers will be front and center at the 3-day conference, including the keynote address by noted lawyer and marketing strategist, Ari Kaplan.
In addition, one day-long track will be devoted to "cloud" computing which is taking the world--and the legal community--by storm. Lawyers need to know and understand cloud computing because it covers a wide spectrum of possibilities for law firms from new desktop tools to new ways to offer (and deliver) legal services over the Internet. And, unlike any other generic technology conference, ABA TECHSHOW focuses the program on what lawyers need to know about the topics, including the ethical ramifications.
ABA TECHSHOW is a multi-track conference over 2 1/2 days produced by the ABA Law Practice Management Section. (In the interest of full disclosure, I am one of the nine volunteer members of the ABA TECHSHOW Planning Board.) Make your plans now to attend this conference: Block out the days on your calendar before they get filled and then register ASAP to get the best conference rate. Finally, use your favorite travel site, but I like Kayak to find the best deals to get to Chicago for this fun and educational event.
