Elevate 2019

Held annually and put on by LegalShield, Elevate is a conference dedicated to connecting and empowering lawyers who strive to close the Access-to-Justice Gap. This year’s gathering was held at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, Colorado. In addition to river rafting, Elevate 2019 offered at least 10 hours of state-approved CLE for those in live attendance. The educational sessions were aimed at small to large-sized firms and covered topics like reducing costs, improving processes, artificial intelligence, analytics, utilizing data, and limited scope representation.

There were also opportunities to tune-up one’s knowledge in specific practice areas like Cannabis Law, Elder Law, and Personal Injury as well as listen to a series of Tech Talks. 

For our part, we managed to record 5 episodes from the conference featuring speakers like Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner Glen Mulready, former Attorney General of Oklahoma Michael Turpen, and Clio’s CEO and founder Jack Newton. Among the issues discussed were the future of legal services, insurance, Cannabis Law, utilizing data, and access to justice. To listen to those episodes and see who participated, please continue reading below. We hope you enjoy our conference coverage!
