It’s been quite a few years since I served on the ABA TECHSHOW planning Board. That’s probably a good thing because I would have lobbied for some puns in ABA TECHSHOW 2020 marketing.

ABA TECHSHOW 2020- Your vision for the future of your law practice.

Or something about 2020 hindsight, if you miss this one.

If we used Super Bowl style Roman numerals, it would be ABA TECHSHOW MMXX. Or we could focus on the fact ABA TECHSHOW ends on LEAP DAY. (ABA TECHSHOW will be held  February 26 – 29, 2020 in Chicago.)

As far as legal technology conferences go, ABA TECHSHOW is tops in my books. The faculty is selected based on merit, not corporate sponsorship. (Although they have loosened things up the last few years with some vendor lunch ‘n learns, which has worked out well.) The educational sessions include MCLE accreditation and are accompanied by well-done written materials so you can benefit even from the sessions you didn’t attend. Most who follow legal technology recognize the names of many ABA TECHSHOW speakers, but the planning board also searches out new talent. The content is relevant for most lawyers, but particularly useful for those in medium-size to smaller law firms. Check out the programming tracks. The sessions will be announced soon.

There are educational sessions on the ethics of using legal technology. For example, I’ve been asked to speak on the Cybersecurity track on the subject Cloudy, With a Chance of Sanctions, a topic of interest to all lawyers. (I’m also speaking on How to Partner Like a Pro on the Recession Proof track.)

So here is what you need to do. First calendar February 26 – 29, 2020 now so you won’t schedule a conflict and then also calendar the Early Bird deadline of January 13, 2020 as the deadline day for for discounted registration.

Oklahoma Bar Association members can use OBA Event Promoter Discount Code EP2011 to save when registering on the TECHSHOW website.

You need to attend for ABA TECHSHOW 2020. If you keep planning on it, but haven’t yet, this should be your year. I’ve got my eyes on you and I hope to see you there.
