Earlier this year our head of product, Maya Markovich, was named one of the American Bar Association Legal Technology Resource Center’s Women of Legal Tech 2018. As part of this initiative, LTRC runs an interview series highlighting each of these top women driving innovation in legal, their career paths and tangible effects on the industry. Maya’s well-deserved recognition is live on the LTRC website today!
The interview spotlights some of the cool projects she has been focused on lately (both inside and outside Nextlaw Labs), the resources, technologies and people in the industry that she is excited about, and advice for women considering the legal tech field. We’re so proud that Maya represents Nextlaw Labs – she’s a whirlwind of activity and a personification of legal innovation.
A couple of highlights from her interview:
Legal tech has the power to amplify the impact of people’s actions and accelerate the move toward a more equitable society.
It’s for good reason that legal design is fast becoming an industry buzzword and a core focus for Nextlaw Labs. The opportunities for implementing innovation in the world of law via legal design consulting are boundless.
Watch what law schools like Suffolk, Northwestern, and Chicago-Kent, as well as legal tech communities on other continents, are doing—that’s where a lot of the leading edge stuff is happening.
Bring a scientific approach: daydream/hypothesize about where legal tech is going next, then seek out data to disprove those hypotheses, and you’ll find yourself with some intriguing pathways to investigate.
