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.
