LawSites is a blog created by Bob Ambrogi that posts news and reviews of websites of interest to the legal profession. Bob is a lawyer and consultant that has been writing and speaking about the internet, social media and legal technology for about 20 years. Recently, Bob compiled a list of influential women in the Legal Tech field in his post “2017: The Year of Women in Legal Tech.” Our very own Sharon Nelson made his list!
Excerpt: “As 2017 comes to a close, I took time to think back over the major trends and developments in legal technology over the past 12 months. I figured I write about such notable trends as artificial intelligence, bots and blockchain. But as I was thinking about the year, something else stood out – the prominence of women in legal tech.
Indeed, well before 2017, women were major trailblazers in many areas of legal tech. To even begin to name any is to omit so many others, but among the pioneers are Maura Grossman, a leader in e-discovery innovation; Sharon Nelson, cofounder of Sensei Enterprises and the dean of forensics and cybersecurity; and Stacy Stern, cofounder of Findlaw and Justia and one of the earliest pioneers in legal information technology.”
