Disruptive Innovation in Law and "The Future of Legal Education: Preparing Law Students to Be Great Lawyers"


On April 24, 2015 I gave a Keynote speech about "Ethical Concerns about Cyber Threats and the Internet" at the Oregon Law Review Symposium on Disruptive Innovation in Law and Technology. The same day my Oregon Law Review article was published and I encourage you to read "The Future of Legal Education: Preparing Law Students to Be Great Lawyers."

The Symposium was hosted in the by US District Judge Ann Aiken in the Portland federal court house, and other 5 excellent Keynote speakers at the Symposium were:

Dan Harris – Celebrated international lawyer and a leading authority on legal matters related to doing business in China and in other emerging economies in Asia, founder of Harris Moure, and co-author of the China Law Blog.

Daniel Martin Katz - Internationally recognized legal informatics and legal technology scholar, author, and inventor, pushing the boundaries of legal innovation within Michigan State University’s ReInvent Law Laboratory.

Michael Callier - International lawyer and Legal Process Strategist inside of Davis Wright Tremaine’s research and development department. Researching and developing innovations to increase client value.

Achim Reeb -Management consultant at PROsys LLC and draws upon 18 years of pharmaceutical consulting experience in R&D, Sales, Production, IT and Regulatory Affairs. His experience spans engagements with over a dozen global medical device and pharmaceutical companies to achieve better business performance.

Kelly Reynolds - A law reference librarian at the University of Oregon School of Law.

Many thanks to the Symposium Chair Thomas Mehaffy (graduating this month) who hosted a very thought provoking event.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
