LegalTech 2014: A Benchmarking Summary

Published Mon, February 17, 2014 by Debora Motyka Jones, Esq.

In case you missed LegalTech this year, I wanted to take a moment to share some key takeaways to help you benchmark against your peers and fill you in on what you missed.

Why shouldn’t the same rules apply? Well, the implications of the training mean some of those rules can get you into trouble later on.
