In what has been an ongoing conversation, this morning Elanasarah asked me the following, often asked but seldom answered question: How does an attorney break in to the LegalTech world? This post summarizes my answers on how to get into this bourgeoning space. LegalTech folks what do you think?
In short, cross-functional attorneys are highly sought after in the new and expanding LegalTech field. They are what the industry needs. Some such dually-skilled attorneys are developing as leaders in their space, but there remain a plethora of opportunities for more voices. Methods for successful marketing and product development in legal tech are materializing, but the industry is still making mistakes due to a lack of established procedures. There is room for improvement and leadership. If you want to break in, you can. Learn it. Own it. Then pursue it.
