Jean is a unique and important voice in the large law, librarian, and legal technology and innovation communities. There are not many journalists who care about legal technology so much that they write about it, raise challenging questions and, perhaps more significantly, do the hard work necessary to keep themselves fluent in emerging technologies. I believe that these voices are critically important to the legal community overall.
Jean brings a unique perspective. she’s an experienced end user, but also someone who is a careful follower of legal trends, and issues affecting law firm reputation, budget and business success. Her blog is an invaluable resource to anyone interested in the same.
