Ep.10 – Voices of CLOC 2018

Summary:  Episode 10 of the Blacklines & Billables podcast: the next installment of our “Voices” series—this time from the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium’s Institute in Las Vegas.  Armed with a portable microphone and eight questions about CLOC and legal technology and innovation, we asked a range of lawyers and technologists to share their views on key issues facing the legal and legal technology ecosystems.  Their short, on-the-spot answers created this “Voices of CLOC 2018” podcast.

The Questions:

  1. As a legal technology conference, what makes CLOC special?
  2. What’s something you’d like to see or hear more at CLOC?
  3. What’s something you’d like to see or hear less at CLOC?
  4. What’s the most significant difference between the legal tech needs of corporate legal departments and law firms?
  5. Which legal innovation or technology product has been most significant for your professional life over the last three years?
  6. What’s the most interesting company, product, or innovation (with which you’re not affiliated) that you’ve seen at CLOC?
  7. What part of the legal landscape is most in need of significant innovation?
  8. What’s your favorite source of information about what’s happening in legal technology and innovation?
