I had the pleasure of interviewing Andrew Arruda, CEO and Co-founder of ROSS Intelligence, a new legal research tool that improves its intelligence with each lawyer interaction. He had the recently privilege to speak at a TED talk, which can be viewed here. What do you do for a living and where do you work? I […]
I had the pleasure to ask Cornelius Range about his decision to pursue software over law after graduation, and his experience at the coding bootcamp, Epicodus. This interview (to be integrated) is among the interviews from my book Quit Law and Code about making the career transition to software development. www.corneezius.com / @corneezius How and when did you decide […]
I had the pleasure to meet Garric. Coincidentally, he’s an attorney (USC ’12) who left to code, and it happens to be in Swift/iOS development.

This is likely close to the 10th article from a major publication I’ve read about the dire state of legal education and the entry job market in the past several years. How this now […]
Tweet A few months ago, I wrote the post Westlaw and Lexis Nexis: Are Your Days Numbered Yet?. In it, I touched upon the legal research marketplace dominated by those two products and the incoming competition in the form of Silicon Valley start-ups. The post made it to the front page on Hacker News, and brought out some […]
