Jeremy Hill, best known for his involvement with the In Brief/Loties awards and the Legal Technology Journal/Legal Technology Awards, is planning a comeback with a new publishing and virtual exhibition project.
Scheduled to launch in April, the first part will be a weekly legal IT email news round-up called the Legal Technology Times – this picks up from his old LTJ/LTA era Legal Technology Update zine and looks like giving the “Tweedles” – Legal IT News and LSN on IT – a run for their money. The Times is however only a part of the story as this will develop over the coming year into a virtual exhibition/online product directory project called the Legal Technology Gateway. Hill says he appreciates the Gateway faces an uphill battle as recent attempts by other organisation to run virtual exhibitions – including Virtual LegalTech in the US and the Virtual Legal IT Show in the UK – have met with a lukewarm reception.
Hill – who will continue to work in his business development role at LexisNexis and will be working on these projects in his spare time – did not say whether he might also try to revive his legal technology awards.
