This Wednesday, October 17, marks the the third annual Legal Geek Law Tech Conference.
What started out as 30 people eating pizza and drinking beer in the basement of a startup warehouse in San Francisco, Legal Geek has grown into one of the largest legal tech conferences in the world with over 2,000 attendees from 40 countries coming this year.
They’ll have over a 100 speakers from US, Canada, Russia, Singapore, New Zealand, Spain, France, Netherlands and Israel. Legal Geek’s new In-House stage hopes to make legal tech more relevant for general GC’s.
Founded by Jimmy Vestbirk, Legal Geek is a startup community with over 6,000 members. Like organizations and startups in the States, they see their members, “Friends of Legal Geek” changing the legal profession forever.
I have been following Legal Geek and Vestbirk for a couple years and been drawn to the fun they they have, the passion they bring and to the people and companies they cover.
Road trips in the orange VW bus across the UK and the continent bring coverage of legal tech and its people. All interviews, of course, in the back seat of the VW bus. Their blog brings regular news, including the “Lawyers who Code” series.
LexBlog brings its “Legal Tech Founders Series” to Legal Geek, where I’ll interview a number of legal tech company founders. We have a good number lined up, but drop me a note if you want to be interviewed.
In addition to the main conference on Wednesday, Legal Geek, has a startup event tonight and design conference on Thursday. Quite a show, and glad to be here.
