The Early Bird Deadline for registering for ABA TECHSHOW 2012 has been extended until February 24, 2012. This is a really good year to attend ABA TECHSHOW.
As ABA TECHSHOW Reid Trautz notes in his TECHSHOW blog post, Why ABA TECHSHOW is About Your Future, there are many changes impacting the legal industry. Some of these changes are the result of the adoption of new technology, while technology is the key to responding to others. An ABA Journal article this week quoted law professor Brian Tamanaha as writing that law schools produce 45,000 new graduates each year, while only 25,000 job openings are projected each year through 2018. Surely we all have to recognize that trend impacts many practicing lawyers, not just the newly minted lawyers who cannot find a job.
Read Mr. Trautz's post. This is a critical time for us all. I'm excited about ABA TECHSHOW and my Saturday morning presentation, The Future of Law Practice: Dark Clouds or Silver Linings. I hope to see you at ABA TECHSHOW.
