Law Tech 2014

What's the hottest new phone? Tech gurus Phillip Hampton and Bill Ramsey offered competing opinions during the Bill and Phil Tech Gadget Show at Law Tech.

The 2014 edition of the Law Tech unConference was the largest and most successful yet. Drawing more than 100 registrants and a dozen sponsors, the unConference continued to excel at providing a relaxed, unconventional learning atmosphere, where attorneys could come and go, attend whichever sessions they found interesting and get all of it free if they wanted.

The unConference this year offered programming in two tracks, with one dedicated to tech topics and the other toward law practice tips. Ample time was provided to give attorneys the opportunity to explore the exhibit hall and sample some of the latest gadgets, software and services for attorneys. A number of the programs are now available as online videos. Those include:
