Everything You Need to Know About LegalTech New York 2011

January 3, 2011
Salt Lake City, UT

LegalTech New York claims to be the "most important legal technology event of the year." That claim will be put on trial very shortly as the show will take place from January 31st - February 2nd at the Hilton New York Hotel.

Last year's show was highlighted by Malcolm Gladwell's keynote speech, and this year's sessions promise to be just as good. The show will offer up to 20 CLE credits and will be a cornucopia of legal tech knowledge from cloud computing to social media and beyond.

Social Media

Social media will once again be front and center during the show and the first place to start is on Twitter. Follow the #LTNY hashtag for all LegalTech NY related tweets. There is also a LegalTech NY Twitter list for all attendees and alumni. If you will be attending the show, send us a tweet at @NetDocuments and we'll make sure you get added to the list.

If that's not social enough for you, there is a LegalTech LinkedIn group where you can participate in forums and find other attendees to network with. You can also expect attendees to post their experiences on YouTube as the RocketMatter guys did last year.

But wait...there's more. For all solo and small firms attending the event, there is a Tweetup being organized by Lisa Solomon that will happen February 1st at 5:30.


Other than the keynote sessions, there are a number of other sessions that have been generating buzz. Here are some of the ones I've been hearing about…

Day 1- January 31

3:45-5:00 User Tales from the Cloud: Probably the most anticipated day 1 session features Mark Manoukian of Kegler Brown, Judi Flournoy of Loeb & Loeb and Silas McCullogh of mindSHIFT. This session is CLE eligible and should present forward thinking ideas on new technology.

Day 2 – February 1

10:30-11:45 Trends in Social Media and computing: Two of the hottest topics in all technology circles.

12:00-1:00 Understanding and Mitigating the Risks of Cloud Technology: This will be a panel moderated by the CommVault team.

2:00-3:15 Hosted Solution for Document & Records Management: Legal technology veteran Lawrence Gianneschi from Colgate-Palmolive and Alvin Tedjamulia of NetDocuments will be on this panel that will discuss document management trends.

SaaS Document Management

NetDocuments will once again be at LegalTech New York representing the world of cloud computing and SaaS. Matt Duncan, Keith Schneider and the legal sales team will be posted up at booth #1300 which is on the second level next to the Keynote session stage. If you'd like to set up a meeting, send an email to sales@netdocuments.com or send us a tweet at @NetDocuments.
