Episode Notes

This year’s ABA TECHSHOW roster has more women faculty than men. While the legal industry has previously been predominantly men, this demographic is shifting. In this episode of On The Road, host Sharon Nelson talks to Linda Klein, Heidi Alexander, Rochelle Washington, Brooke Moore, Sarah Glassmeyer, and Catherine Reach about the women in legal technology. Their discussion includes why it’s important to promote women’s roles in the legal industry and what specific characteristics women have to improve the tech field.

Linda Klein is the current president of the American Bar Association. In her practice life, she is managing shareholder for the Georgia offices of Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, LLP.

Heidi Alexander is a law practice management advisor at the Massachusetts Law Office Management Assistance Program (MassLOMAP), where she advises lawyers on practice management matters and provides guidance in implementing new law office technologies.

Rochelle Washington is the senior staff attorney in the Practice Management Advisory Service (PMAS) of the D.C. Bar. She assists lawyers with starting and managing law firms through sessions, programs, and seminars.

Catherine Sanders Reach is the director of law practice management technology for the  Chicago Bar Association. For over 10 years, she was the director at the ABA’s Legal Technology Resource Center and served on the ABA TECHSHOW Board from 2007-2009.

Brooke Moore is the managing attorney at Arkansas Virtual Lawyer. She created AVL based on a growing need for affordable quality assistance and a steady decline in access, currently not adequately addressed by the legal industry.

Sarah Glassmeyer is a lawyer and librarian currently working as a research fellow in the Harvard Library Innovation Lab. She is a passionate believer in the idea that access to information is access to justice.
