Thank you for your interest in the LegalHackers group starting up in Pennsylvania. The response so far has been overwhelmingly positive and supportive and demonstrates that we have professionals from a broad spectrum who are interested in seeing this group succeed.
Our first MeetUp will be on Wednesday, January 28th, at 6:30 at 1701 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, the home of Benjamin's Desk. Benjamin's Desk (http://benjaminsdesk.com/) is a shared office and co-working space that Pepper Hamilton Attorney Jennifer Maher founded with her husband, Mike. They are not only hosting us, but opening up their 8th floor to us for our first meetup, in anticipation of strong attendance. So please share this invitation with other professionals you may know who are interested in the intersection of law and technology.
To get this group off to a strong start, our first meeting will involve sharing experiences at the intersection of legal tech and brainstorming about ways in which technology can be better leveraged within the legal profession. We'll also be looking for speakers to invite to future Meetups and thinking about how LegalHackersPA can draw on the work of other LegalHackers groups around the country.
Please mark Jan 28th on your calendars and share with others who could add their experience to this discussion. Looking forward to thinking creatively and strategically with you all!
Michele Pistone & John Rafferty
