Six Ways to Jump Start Your LinkedIn Network (New Article)

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 02:16:29 +0000

Allison Shields and I were talking the other day about LinkedIn and whether it was time to write a new edition of our book, LinkedIn in One Hour for Lawyers. Whether or not it’s time for a new edition, it became clear that we (meaning especially me) were not ready to write it. However, we […]



Quarterly Personal Offsite Meetings

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 02:05:11 +0000

I recently read Greg McKeown‘s excellent book called Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. Lots of good ideas in the book, but the one that has stuck with me is the “quarterly personal offsite meeting.” I’ve also heard this idea mentioned in other blog posts and podcasts. Count me in. For many people, the only […]



Tech/Life Balance and Other Law Technology Today Roundtables

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 02:43:39 +0000

One of my favorite writing outlets these days is the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center’s Law Technology Today blog. I’m a regular participant in a series of monthly roundtable discussions by LTRC board members on technology topics. Today, the latest of these was posted and it’s called “Finding a Work Life Balance Through Technology.” In […]



LTRC’s Women of Legal Tech – 2016

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 02:38:52 +0000

I’m excited to point readers to the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center’s 2016 Women of Legal Tech list. As the announcement says: One of the American Bar Association’s core values is a commitment to diversity, which the Law Practice Division aims to reinforce in the legal tech sector. This year, approximately 30% of the ABA […]

Long-time readers of this blog will know that today is the blawgiversary of DennisKennedy.Blog. I started this blog on February 15, 2003, and we (my blog and me) are marking its thirteenth birthday today. That makes DennisKennedy.Blog a teenager. Much more about that in a minute. In previous years, I marked the week of the […]

Mon, 15 Feb 2016 03:02:18 +0000

The 2015 ABA TECHREPORT is out. The TECHREPORT is a set of free articles where the American Bar Association’s Legal Technology Resource Center has legal technology expert analyze and summarize data from the 2015 ABA Legal Technology Survey Report. I chipped in with an article on cloud computing survey results. The highlights: Law firm managing […]



52 Books in 52 Weeks – 2016

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 03:38:50 +0000

For the last few years, I’ve enjoyed reading the posts of several bloggers who are trying to read 52 books in 52 weeks. I’ve also wanted to find a good way for me to keep track of the books I’ve read. And it gives me a good reading target to shoot for. Last year, I […]



Are There Really Too Many Lawyers?

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 22:03:17 +0000

Last summer, I was asked the question “Are there really too many lawyers?” I wrote a reply and remembered the other day that I never posted it. Unlike when you write something for a print publication and might have to wait months for an article to appear, the great benefit of having your own blog […]

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 15:20:19 +0000

Welcome to the 2015 edition of Dennis Kennedy’s annual Best of Law-related Blogging Awards, affectionately known as the “Blawggies.” The Blawggies, which honor the best law-related blogs as determined from my personal and highly-opinionated perspective, were first unleashed on an unsuspecting blogosphere in December 2004 and are an annual tradition here at DennisKennedy.Blog. In perhaps […]

I’m a big fan of the Law Technology Today blog. [Disclosure: I’m the chair of the board for the ABA’s Legal Technology Resource Center, which publishes the blog. A new monthly feature of the blog is a roundtable discussion post featuring members of the LTRC Board and occasional guests. The series is a great way […]



Timely Technology Competence Tips for the Non-Technological Lawyer

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 02:12:12 +0000

I developed a new presentation on technology competence and legal ethics for the recent Missouri Bar Lex Port 2015 conference. I took a new and practical approach and wrote the following as part of the handout materials. It largely reflects the direction I took in the presentation. Let me know what you think of this […]



Lex Port 2015 – Excellent and Affordable Legal Tech CLE

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 10:39:08 +0000

There’s been a lot of discussion about how the definition of “competence” for lawyers also includes the duty to keep up with applicable technologies. Talk can be cheap, but the good news is that doing something about learning about applicable technologies lawyers can be an inexpensive proposition, at least in the St. Louis, Missouri area. […]



Catching Up – Here, There and Everywhere

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 01:45:08 +0000

I’ve had quite a few articles, podcasts and other things appear over the last few months, but not on this blog. It seemed like a good time to catch up and point to some of those. Tom Mighell and I have continued a good run of episodes on The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast. Recent ones include: […]



Are Lawyers Ready for Artificial Intelligence?

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 00:29:52 +0000

Tom Mighell and I have had an especially good run of episodes recently on The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast. I especially want to recommend the most recent one “Are Lawyers Ready for Artificial Intelligence?“ I had been seeing a lot of blog posts, articles, tweets and other mentions of AI, IBM Watson, machine learning and the […]



ABA TECHSHOW 2015 – A Few Reflections

Fri, 08 May 2015 02:05:22 +0000

Another ABA TECHSHOW (#ABATECHSHOW) blazed by and I barely have had time to catch my breath afterward. I also had little time to catch my breath at the show – it was a whirlwind. The good news is that Tom Mighell and I captured our reflections on TECHSHOW in an episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report […]



Happy Twelfth Birthday to DennisKennedy.Blog

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 02:50:59 +0000

Twelve years ago today, I launched this blog. I decided to call the blog simply DennisKennedy.Blog. My blog and I celebrated the birth day quietly today, with only a little fanfare, as we awaited a large winter storm predicted for St. Louis.We talked at length about the positive response the blog has always gotten and […]



Reconsidering Speech Recognition

Mon, 02 Feb 2015 01:57:45 +0000

I’ve been thinking lately about whether changes in technology should be causing us revisit ideas and approaches that we have tossed aside or put on the back burner for many years. In simplest terms, the question would be if high-speed Internet connections, mobile access, processor power, memory, storage and the Cloud now make it possible […]



Must-have Apps for Lawyers – My New ABA Journal Column

Mon, 02 Feb 2015 01:16:54 +0000

My latest “Kennedy on Tech” ABA journal column is my attempt to answer a question I frequently hear from lawyers – “What mobile apps should I have?” One of the things that intrigues me most about our new world of apps is how personalized each of our experiences using tech, especially mobile devices, has become. […]

Welcome to the 2014 edition of Dennis Kennedy’s annual Best of Law-related Blogging Awards, affectionately known as the “Blawggies.” The Blawggies, which honor the best law-related blogs as determined from my personal and highly-opinionated perspective, were first unleashed on an unsuspecting blogosphere in December 2004 and are an annual tradition here at DennisKennedy.Blog.

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 20:50:58 +0000

I wanted to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving. It’s a good time to say “thnak you!” to my patient readers (and the impatient ones, too). I’m hoping to get back onto a regular blogging schedule soon. I also wanted to highlight some of my recent podcasts, articles and other odds & ends. Tom Mighell and […]



Reflections on 2014 College of Law Practice Management’s Futures Conference

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 02:03:54 +0000

A few weeks ago, I was honored to be inducted as a Fellow in the College of Law Practice Management, joining a group full of people I have long admired and gotten the opportunity to speak, write and work with over the years. Even better, I got to attend the 2014 Futures Conference held at […]

This post is a test of my new blog redesign. A big thank you to Aaron and Dylan Lopez at Inno Software for the redesign and revamping of my blog and website and for being so great to work with. There’s still work for me to do, but the redesign is now live. An even […]



GC Research Club Interview about Legal Technology

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 01:32:53 +0000

William Barns Graham at the GC Research Club interviewed me a while back about technology as it relates to in-house counsel, some of my uses of technology, collaboration and other topics. The interview originally ran in two parts, but has been collected conveniently in one place, as “GCRC Interview: Dennis Kennedy, Vice President, Counsel at […]



Presentation Tips for Legal Professionals: A Podcast Series

Fri, 30 May 2014 00:24:39 +0000

I’ve done a number of presentations lately in all sorts of formats – solo, duo, panels and webcasts. For the Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast on the Legal Talk Network, Tom and I decided to record an episode in which we shared some of our latest tips and observations about presenting. The result was the episode called […]



Recents Podcasts, Articles and Odds & Ends

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 02:47:50 +0000

I wanted to highlight some of my recent podcasts, articles and other odds & ends.

Happy Eleventh Birthday to DennisKennedy.Blog

Sun, 16 Feb 2014 01:19:24 +0000

Eleven years ago today, with an allusion to Babylon 5 and the ideas that I needed to produce my own RSS feed and experiment with new types of writing, I launched this blog. I called the blog simply DennisKennedy.Blog. Much has happened with me and this blog over those eleven years. I appreciate the positive […]
