Episode Notes

Legal Talk Network Producer Laurence Colletti interviews Casey Flaherty about his Plenary Session at the 2015 ABA TECHSHOW in Chicago. Flaherty, an Austin-based lawyer, is well-known for creating the Legal Technology Audit (LTA), a test of basic technological proficiency for lawyers and in-house corporate departments. In the interview, he discusses his path to creating the LTA, the ethical minimum of technological knowledge for lawyers, and why this is important for lawyers and clients.

Topics include:

  • Creating the LTA and developing it with Andrew Pearlman
  • The myth of the digital native
  • Recommendations for technologically deficient law students or lawyers
  • Flaherty’s new career as a legal department consultant
  • Using the velocity metric to calculate wasted time

After being in-house counsel at Kia Motors for four years, Casey Flaherty has recently started his own consultancy practice focusing on empirically based approaches to legal quality and legal spend management for in-house departments.
