Andrea Hartley
In the legal arena, no one can deny that technology has brought lawyers, clients, and technology together in remarkable ways. As a first-year associate more than 20 years ago, I would never have imagined the ability to file documents with the court electronically while flying at 30,000 feet. Nor would I have imagined conducting depositions via video conferencing simultaneously in three different states, or strategizing with a client halfway around the world “face-to-face” on Skype. As we consider these amazing advances while celebrating the 25th Anniversary of ABA TECHSHOW this year, it is evident that not only has ABA TECHSHOW withstood the test of time, it is more relevant today than when it was first created. There is truly an impressive range of topics on the conferences’ slate this year, and I want to thank all the ABA TECHSHOW 2011 Planning Board for the dedication, hard work and commitment to the LPM section.
