January 2016 may almost be over.
But the special #LegalTech edition of The Florida Bar Journal will be around forever!
We’ve received so many compliments on the issue that Florida Bar Technology Committee Chair John Stewart said at the Winter Meeting last week he hopes this initial digital issue was just the first of many more to come.
Over the next five days to close out this month, we’ll be taking an even closer look at some of the articles written — and the authors who wrote them. They’re a “who’s who” in the legal industry, and we can’t thank everyone enough who contributed to this edition.
But that won’t stop us from trying!
These headlines alone tell you how much time and effort was put into these pieces. So thank you VERY much for the following contributions to and from …
FLORIDA & TECHNOLOGY:
** Murray Silverstein (Greenberg Traurig) and Amy S. Borman (Florida RJA Chair), who co-authored, “Technology and Florida’s Rules of Judicial Administration”
** Kevin D. Johnson (2017 Florida Bar Technology Committee Chair) — “The Florida Bar Creates Practice Resource Institute”
** Judge Lisa Munyon (Chair of Florida Courts Technology Commission) and Christina Blakeslee (13th Circuit Chief Technology Officer), who co-authored: “Florida Courts Technology Commission: The Integral Body of Which You’ve Never Heard”
TECHNOLOGY & THE PRACTICE OF LAW:
** Casey Flaherty (Founder of the Legal Technology Assessment Test) — “Lawyers and Technology: A Bad Marriage Gets Worse”
** Jordan Furlong (Renowned legal industry analyst) — “Fight With (Not Against) the Machine”
** Adriana Linares (Founder of LawTech Partners & Florida Bar Technology Consultant) — “Information Management Skills Every Attorney Should Know”
** Jared Correia (Writer for Attorney at Work & Solo Practice University) — “Give and Take: Getting More Out of Your Software”
** Mark Britton (Avvo Lawyers CEO) — ” Behind Stables and Saloons: The Legal Profession’s Race to the Back of the Technological Pack”
RISK & TECHNOLOGY:
** Renée E. Thompson (Florida Bar BOG member) — “Cybersecurity: Getting Proactive About Data Vulnerability”
** Demetrios A. Eleftheriou (Director of Global Privacy at Symantec) — “Tips on Protecting Personal Data”
** Robert Hilson (Director of Content at Logikcull) — “Five Ways to Avoid Getting Sued for Discovery Malpractice
** David Whelan (Renowned legal scholar) — “What Is the Biggest Technology-Related Issue Facing Lawyers Today?”
** Kenneth A. Grady (Renowned legal industry “problem solver”) — “How are Nontraditional Legal Service Providers Impacting the Average Lawyer’s Practice?”

** Alon Rotem (RocketLawyer) and Susan Cartier Liebel (Solo Practice University), who co-authored, “What Will a Lawyer’s Practice Be Like in Five to 10 Years?”
And while Mr. Stewart — author of Introduction, “This Is Not Your Father’s Florida Bar Journal (Or Law Practice)” — pushed the envelope on the Bar’s first digital edition focused on legal technology, it was the Bar Journal and News staff — under the leadership of Journal and News Editor of Cheryle Dodd — which made it all happen.
Thanks again — to everyone!
