Atlanta, GA, March 06, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Ignite Law, being held at Chicago’s Hilton on March 24, 7:00-10PM, will feature 10-15 six-minute presentations given by the legal industry’s leading minds and innovators.
Ignite Law was inspired by the Ignite event format; a fast-paced, high-energy evening of five-minute talks by people who have an idea. While Ignite events are now being hosted globally and focused on building local city-wide connections, Ignite Law is specific to the legal community.
Ignite Law 2010’s theme “the future of law practice in six-minute increments” is designed to bring together the most creative and thought-provoking ideas focused on the profession’s future. The ABA Law Practice Management Section, which is producing the annual ABA Techshow following Ignite Law, March 25-27, is one of the headline sponsors of the event, and providing the evening’s venue at the Hilton. The ABA Journal and its popular Legal Rebels initiative is the other main sponsor and will be providing coverage of the event via its websites, publications and blog outlets.
“LexThink has always been about legal innovation and changing the practice of law in ways to benefit lawyers and their clients. Ignite Law is a natural extension of this philosophy,” stated Mathew Homann, LexThink founder. “The Ignite format of sharing clever and innovative ideas in short twenty-slide presentations is very engaging and keeps audience members involved and alert. Ignite Law will follow a six-minute presentation format, in honor of attorneys’ six-minute billing increments, and strive to spark discussions, new thinking, and innovation as it relates to the future of law practice. We have already heard from many of the leading legal minds interested in presenting on the 24th.”
In an effort to share Ignite Law 2010 with as many minds as possible, the producers have teamed with Peach New Media, an innovative online CLE provider and multimedia company, to produce professional videos of all presentations as well as provide live streaming of the event accessible to anyone online. All Ignite Law content will be available post event at www.ignitelaw.com as well as www.insidelegal.com.
“We see Ignite Law as truly pushing the envelope as far as legal events go. The focus is not on the same tried and true speakers, topics and sponsors. The goal is to inspire new ideas and spark innovations surrounding the practice of law,” stated JoAnna Forshee, CEO, InsideLegal.com and Envision Agency. “The rapid fire presentation format and the opportunity for all players in the legal community – consultants, media, vendors, law firms, and associations - to actively participate are bound to make this a new type of event experience.”
Staying true to the spirit of Ignite, the Ignite Law event will be open to the public, on a first come first serve basis. Ignite Law talk submissions are open to all legal innovators and thought leaders and will be reviewed and approved by the Ignite Law 2010 producers. All presentation submissions can be made at www.ignitelaw.com until March 12. Online ticketing as well as vendor sponsor information is also available on the site.
