Ernie The Attorney reports on his experiences at the LegalTech conference in Los Angeles. He has some interesting observations:

It’s too bad that more lawyers don’t attend conferences like this one: there were several great programs that required no special tech-awareness. In fact, the session about ‘Coping with E-Mail Overload’ was one of the most useful programs I’ve seen recently. Obviously, you don’t have to be a techie to understand that E-Mail is something that needs to be carefully managed.

Some of the other things he talks about are E-Discovery, software training (a touchy subject for many law firms, as we ourselves have seen), and the e-mail problem (too many e-mails, too little time).

All in all, it’s a very worthwhile read.
