Technology, the Legal Profession and What That Means for You As a former lawyer, I like to think of the law as the invisible rules that hold our society together. Everything we do, from marriage, to children, to jobs, to driving, to buying a home or renting an apartment is governed by some sort of law. And whether or not we are aware of what those laws say or require, we are still impacted by them every day. Similar to the way the internet has brought us access to more medical information than ever before, so too has it increased our access to legal information. This impacts the consumer, but it also impacts the lawyers. Now, more than ever, lawyers must embrace technology so they can serve their clients in the most effective, efficient manner. And if they can’t, then another lawyer certainly will! Fortunately there are lawyers such as Dennis Kennedy out there who are leading the charge. Dennis is an information technology lawyer and legal technology author well-known for promoting innovation and the use of technology in the practice of law. He currently focuses on legal technology, innovation, speaking, writing, and coaching and is an adjunct professor in the LegalRnD program at Michigan State University College of Law. Dennis is a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management and recently finished a term of three years as chair of the board of the American Bar Association’s Legal Technology Resource Center. Dennis retired as Senior Counsel for the Digital Payments & Labs group at Mastercard in 2017. Dennis wrote the legal technology column for the ABA Journal for many years, and has co-authored several books including “The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies (2nd edition, 2018) with Tom Mighell. He co-hosts The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast on the Legal Talk Network, and has written his blog, www.DennisKennedy.Blog since 2003.
