ABA TECHSHOW is next week in Chicago. You can still attend even if you haven't pre-registered.
People sometimes question why I promote attendance at ABA TECHSHOW with almost an evangelical fervor. That is sometimes hard to put into words because it is a special and extremely valuable experience.
Kevin O'Keefe, CEO of LexBlog and one of the many legal thought leaders who I met for the first time at ABA TECHSHOW, has done a really great job of putting it into words with his blog post today ABA TECHSHOW for the real lawyers across the country. Every law firm today runs on its technology-based tools. If you cannot attend ABA TECHSHOW this year, make an effort for next year. Many of the state bar associations offer their members discounts on TECHSHOW registration through the TECHSHOW Event Promoter Program. You might check to see if your state bar is listed.
I wanted to publicly thank Kevin O'Keefe for stating what so many of us feel about ABA TECHSHOW.
