A Movement to ReInvent Law
While Innov8Social has been a platform to explore social innovation and startup social entrepreneurs, I was surprised to begin to learn about the emerging innovations in law and legal tech.

Silicon Valley Conference, March 8th 2013: Rapid-Fire
In rapid-fire style, the conference featured over 40 speakers–many of whom presented in 6-8 minutes. The quick progression of speakers made the presentations more of a “pitch” than an in-depth view and allowed for many ideas to be presented in a short time. With numerous scheduled networking time, the organizers wanted to encourage discussion and debriefing with other attendees.
