Hey everyone, we're on for the June 25 PDX Legal Innovation & Technology Meetup! This month's meeting is being graciously hosted by Simple (https://www.simple.com/) and will feature the following demos/presentations (so far):
• Yongxin Yan (https://www.linkedin.com/pub/yongxin-yan/b/27/79b) will present on the tech and practices behind Intellectual Property Litigation Analytics. Yongxin has a wealth of experience in natural language processing and other technologies necessary to facilitate computer-aided research of legal sources, having served as Chief Scientist at Lex Machina and a Machine Learning Specialist for NetBase.
• I (John Grant (https://www.linkedin.com/in/johnegrant)) will be presenting on the Dispute Resolution Canvas (http://agileattorney.net/2015/05/15/dispute-resolution-through-visual-thinking/), a visual framework based on the Business Model Canvas (http://businessmodelgeneration.com/canvas/bmc) for helping lawyers, mediators, and parties better understand the contours of a dispute and drive more effectively to a resolution.
We are still accepting speakers or workshop ideas for this and future meetups. If you or someone you know would like to give a brief presentation or demo a product related to legal innovation and technology (the definition is very broad!), please don't hesitate to contact me. We are striving to meet on the last Thursday of each month and hope to have a healthy mix of presentations, demos, and hands-on workshops for our upcoming meetings.
Hope to see you all on June 25, and please spread the word about our group. We're at nearly 100 members already and our goal is to turn everyone in the Oregon and SW Washington legal community into a legal innovator!
