The International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) put on another great conference last month. Pro Bono Net’s Director of Product Management Adam Licht attended the 2012 ILTA Conference, held Aug. 26-30 in Washington, DC, thanks to Peggy Wechsler and ILTA’s generosity.

ILTA showcases new technology trends in its large vendor exhibition and in 200 peer-provided educational sessions.  Adam’s takeaways for law firms were 1) efficiency through better project management, and 2) leveraging technology in support of innovation and efficiency.  

For Adam, who leads Pro Bono Manager™, Pro Bono Net’s pro bono practice management service, ILTA is a great place to reconnect with Pro Bono Manager™ customers including McCarter & English, K&L Gates and Kirkland & Ellis.  He was also able to catch up with our corporate sponsor Intelliteach, and with HotDocs, with which we partner on LawHelp Interactive™.

In addition, Adam caught up with Pro Bono Net Board member Michael Mills, CEO of Neota Logic (see related post) and learned about some exciting capabilities in Neota Logic’s product.  Adam also ran into another Board member, Ed Walters, CEO of Fastcase, as well as past board member John Alber, Technology Partner at Bryan Cave.

Of special note at this year’s conference was a speech by Don McMillan, electrical engineer turned comedian, whose keynote was entitled, “Lessons from the CCO (Chief Comedy Officer).”  Take a quick look at his video on The New Office Math.

Adam was also impressed by the ILTA mobile app, which could be easily downloaded for instant access to the conference agenda, speaker details, resort info, Interactive Exhibit Hall, the latest ILTA news and more.
