Robert Ambrogi – 2017: The Year of Women in Legal Tech

This is a must read article – it is a positive, illuminating, thought provoking and informative shout-out to women in legal tech – some of whom you may know, and many to whom you will be introduced – who have redefined this male dominated sector with their innovative and multifaceted work in multiple arenas of an increasingly high profile and competitive sector. I am honored that I am included for BeSpacific and LLRX, and look forward to learning valuable lessons throughout 2018 and beyond from these dynamic women.

Robert Ambrogi – LawSites: “As 2017 comes to a close, I took time to think back over the major trends and developments in legal technology over the past 12 months. I figured I write about such notable trends as artificial intelligence, bots and blockchain. But as I was thinking about the year, something else stood out – the prominence of women in legal tech….But it felt to me that the tide changed in 2017. Yes, legal tech has long been a male-dominated field. Yes, it continues to be a male-dominated field. Yes, women continue to face hurdles breaking into and achieving success in this field. I do not want to minimize any of that. Even so, it felt to me as if we reached a tipping point in which women’s voices and influence combined to form an undeniable force. Women are not just contributing to the legal tech conversation, they are driving it as never before. This did not start in 2017 and it certainly won’t end here. But at the close of a year that started with legal tech entrepreneurs such as Alma Asay feeling frustrated about being a woman in a male-dominated industry, women are, themselves, the legal tech year’s greatest success story.
