I had the immense pleasure of Hosting the Legally Speaking Podcast at this year’s Clio Cloud Conference in Nashville, Tennessee and let me tell you, it was nothing short of epic. The event was buzzing with over 2,000 in-person attendees from more than 20 countries, and an additional 1,000 tuned in virtually.
Jack Newton’s Grand Opening
Jack Newton, the mastermind behind Clio, welcomed us with a stirring keynote, laying out the 2023 Legal Trends Report and highlighting how technology is revolutionizing the legal world. This conference was as much yours as it was Clio’s, Jack reiterated.
Shoutout to the Reisman Award Winners
It was a joy to see so many deserving firms pick up this year’s Reisman Awards. These are firms that truly embody Clio’s mission to transform the legal experience for all.
Consulting Partner Impact Awards
Jack was keen to spotlight those who’ve made a substantial impact in legal consulting. Kudos to this year’s award winners, such as Uptime Legal and Efficient Legal [Mackenzie Consulting].
We were graced by the FBI negotiator, Chris Voss, who shared powerful negotiation techniques, and ex-NFL player Brian Banks spoke movingly about resilience and justice reform. And, let’s not forget Mel Robbins, who taught us how to achieve a better work-life balance with her 5-second rule.
The Panels & Innovations
We discussed everything from mental health microsteps to financial organization for law firms. AI is increasingly becoming a focal point in legal tech, and it was great to get insights into how ChatGPT and other technologies are shaping the future of law.
Fresh off the Press – Clio Duo
Jack announced Clio Duo, an AI tool tailored for legal professionals. It’s all about streamlining those essential tasks, making our lives easier.
Clio didn’t disappoint in rolling out new features either. From specialized personal injury tools to digital wallet payments, they’ve really upped their game this year.
On that note, as a media partner for the conference, we’re excited to share our special miniseries called “Clio Con Clips.” Here, you’ll get to hear directly from team members at Clio, aka “Clions,” Reisman Award winners, and a host of other legal thought leaders shaking up the industry.
