The Main Course: 5 Things That Made Me Think This Week
We're #1: preLaw Magazine has ranked Suffolk Law's Legal Technology program tops in the nation. It also recognizes several other peer institutions doing great work. Self-promotion aside, it's good to see recognition for schools that are working hard in this space, and these ratings might encourage applicants to consider legal tech when selecting a law school.
New Game Lets Players Train AI to Spot Legal Issues: again, bias aside, I'm very excited about this collaboration between Suffolk Law's Legal Innovation & Tech. Lab and Stanford's Legal Design Lab. Read all about the game in the ABA Journal here, and play the game here.
Interview with LegalZoom's GC: Chas Rampenthal has interesting comments on LZ moving into foreign markets, smart contracts, and more. Given their $500m in recent funding and track record of doing impressive things, it's worth paying attention.
Integra Ledger is Making Big Moves, including launching a tool to add blockchain to all existing legal software.
Learning to Code: a write-up on the rising number of MBAs who are learning to code. This will speak to those in the legal field, too.

He Gave *That* 3 and 1/2 Stars? Reading Roger Ebert's archive of movie reviews is fun because he was such a talented writer. He also had some unexpected ratings, including giving 3.5 stars for Anaconda. He was such a good writer that you read that review and actually sort of get where he's coming from (but not really. It's a 1.5 star movie if ever there was one).
