For Episode 9 we hit the road and headed to Boston to visit Gabriel Teninbaum, Director of the Institute on Legal Innovation and Technology and a legal writing professor at Suffolk University School of Law.
To say that Gabe does a lot of interesting legal tech related stuff would be an understatement. Not only does he head up the legal tech Institute at Suffolk, he also holds positions at Harvard and Yale.
Suffolk’s Legal Innovation and Technology Institute has three main programs: A legal tech concentration for law students, the LIT Lab that pairs law students with legal organizations to do R&D work and an online legal tech certificate program for legal professionals.
And, if holding all his positions in academia was not enough, Gabe’s side hustle is an app he developed called Spaced Repetition that helps law students with their studies and prepare for the bar exam.
Finally, Gabe has a great weekly legal tech newsletter called Lawtomatic. You can subscribe to that here.
