Episode Notes
Lawyer and longtime journalist Monica Bay didn’t let sexism or a technology-averse legal establishment keep her from breaking new ground.
“The baby boomer lawyers were so entrenched with the idea that ‘only the girls touch anything with a keyboard’ that they absolutely refused to do anything involving tech,” Bay recalls. “They thought it was beneath them.”
Now, Bay says, the profession has stepped away from thinking that technology is reserved for support staff, and beneath lawyers.
“If you don’t learn tech,” she says, “you are not going to be relevant anymore.”
