For the 2017 Summit Keynote, Professor Gabriel Teninbaum will explore the legal innovation landscape and describe how that is impacting (and will impact) law librarians. Hear how large and small law firms are incorporating technology, responding to client demands and feedback, and how AI and other technologies and trends continue to impact the competitive legal landscape. Delve into the roles of librarians in innovation, efficiency initiatives, and development of potential new revenue streams. Professor Teninbaum will host a lively discussion at the end of the keynote presentation to respond to members’ specific questions. We thank Wolters-Kluwer for their generous support of this year’s keynote address.
