Hitting the LINKS
I am attending my first conference of Q4 today, thanks to our colleagues at HBR Consulting. The inaugural Legal Information + Knowledge Services (LINKS) Conference is underway and it promises to be an excellent addition to annual list of opportunities for info pros to stay on top on industry trends. I hope to have more to report on it soon. I must admit that I have enjoyed the virtual innovations the pandemic has spurred when it comes to conferencing and networking. Perhaps the changes and the opportunities they have created for us to share and learn without having to hit the road or sky will be a lasting legacy of how we rose to meet the COVID-19 challenge.
Legal analytics has certainly been a hot topic as of late. Between new players on the scene releasing platforms dedicated to helping us find the meaning and spot the trends in legal data to new functionality from industry titans, everyone seems to be jumping on the analytics bandwagon. Iantha Haight asks a question that many of us are facing, however. How do we teach people not just the value of legal analytics, but how to actually employ them? Iantha shares some insights from her own experiences in teaching law students about analytics. Learn from her observations in: Teaching Legal Analytics with a View from the Balcony.
