Dare to share your hacks with other legal MacGyvers who have figured out how to improve upon the traditional practice of law!
Are you doing something in your law firm better than everyone else? At ABA TECHSHOW, we love to celebrate and learn from the legal visionaries who are out there doing the legal work – the “Doers,” if you will. If are coming to TECHSHOW and you have designed a hack for your practice that is helping you succeed, we’d like to pass you the microphone at TECHSHOW in a fast-paced, information-packed format known as Ignite presentation!
Here are the basics of the format:
- you get 20 slides,
- slides automatically advance every 15 seconds, and
- presentations last no longer than 5 minutes.
What are we looking for?
Everyone has a practice hack or process in their office that has improved efficiency, client service and/or profitability. It could be an improvement in client intake, onboarding new team members, or using technology to manage your cases. Maybe you have figured out an alternative marketing channel that is really connecting with clients. We love all practice hacks – be it a sophisticated technology tool or a very low-tech solution.
Let’s embrace a growth mindset and make the pie bigger for everyone. Join us for an interactive session on improving the practice of law, led by the “Doers.”
