There's a new location for the Oklahoma Bar Association Solo and Small Firm Conference in 2010. it will be held at the Downstream Resort. We have a very nice website for the OBA Solo and Small Firm Conference that will provide you with all of the information and details.

As you can see from the schedule of presentations, we have some really interesting speakers and topics this year. We are going to delve into the topic of Cloud Computing for Lawyers. One of our presenters will be Jack Newton, whose company produces Clio, a cloud computing practice management solution for small firm and solo lawyers. I think Jack will enjoy meeting our Oklahoma lawyers. He will be followed by our OBA Ethics Counsel, Travis Pickens, who will discuss the ethical issues of cloud computing for lawyers. I'm very interested in this program as I have been happily forwarding Travis links about cloud computing for months now.

Another of our guests will be one of my favorite people in the entire world, Catherine Sanders Reach of the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center.  Catherine is very knowledgeable and her presentations are always very engaging. She will be joining me for the opening presentation, 50 Tips in 50 Minutes, which is always a crowd favorite and doing some other presentations, too.

We are very honored that the Chief Justice of the Oklahoma Supreme Court, James E. Edmondson, will be speaking at our conference as well.

Thanks to our conference sponsors for helping us put on what looks to be another great conference this year.

Oklahoma lawyers should register on or before June 10, for the reduced rate. Reserve your room soon, before all of the rooms are gone at this great new resort location.
