"In my almost three years at ILTA, I am always astounded at the incredible abundance of volunteers who are willing to author creative, helpful, and resourceful blog posts on a quarterly basis. I firmly believe part of the appeal for authoring, is that blog posts offer a very safe, welcoming, and non-time consuming environment for authors to share their wealth of expertise on a pressing problem facing the industry or offering a vital solution/tip to save members valuable time. As an added bonus, many of our blog posts are written with the busy ILTA member in mind and can be consumed in a simple page or two."

Leadership Summit

The Residual Effects of Volunteering Panelists
Written by Shefali Lakhani, Knowledge Management Lawyer, Proskauer Rose LLP

As I was applying to ILTA volunteer positions, I watched the “Residual Effects of
Volunteering,” a timely webinar. It amped me up even further, seeing the potential to
engage in building a community with other smart, excited individuals.

Volunteering presents a myriad of benefits: of course, giving back to and building a strong
community is top of mind, but volunteering can also allow for other ‘residual effects’.
Networking, meeting intelligent, like-minded people, getting exposed to new technologies, as well as becoming effective leaders and communicators, and learning to better listen and
collaborate with others in all ways that ILTA can help progress a career.

ILTA Unlocked: Leadership featuring James McKenna

James McKenna

ILTA Board Member and CIO at Fenwick & West LLP

What opportunities does ILTA provide for legal technologists to further develop their leadership capacities?

As the legal industry continues to see more rapid changes in technology, it’s important to keep an eye out for the bigger picture and ensure you’re not operating with blinders on. As new generations of leaders emerge, it’s important to show them the right way to lead – with confidence, but also compassion. By making quick decisions, while also being deliberate. By taking accountability. And importantly – by listening, and adapting, to the needs of your staff and your attorneys. ILTA recognizes the value of identifying and cultivating future leaders and bolstering existing leaders, by offering a wealth of resources on Leadership. Leadership sessions at ILTACON, a dedicated Leadership event, a frequent Leadership book club, networking opportunities, and countless written articles, are just a few examples.

“ILTA has certainly helped me on my journey to achieving a leadership position by providing me with writing and panel speaking opportunities, growth within the wider Legal Technology community, and a huge sense of support through that community. Involvement in ILTA's Special Interest Groups and roundtables have also helped me gain deeper insight into common industry trends and peer experience, and given me a greater understanding of how to support Legal Tech initiatives and grow adoption through the sharing of use cases and best practices.”

“Like so many others I lost my job in March and was conducting a months-long job search prior to attending ILTA>ON. After feeling disconnected from my profession for an extended period of time, I was looking forward to connecting with the ILTA community by attending ILTA>ON in 2020, but it turned out to be so much more. The learning opportunities allowed me to strengthen and broaden my knowledge of the challenges legal IT professionals are managing during the time of COVID, general trends and allowed me to learn about technologies that I have not had an opportunity to work with. I was fortunate to find a new job in October and was equally fortunate to be awarded a networking scholarship to attending ILTA>ON.

I started the interview process with my new employer weeks after ILTA>ON. Although my past accomplishments speak for themselves, feeling empowered and charged up by the ILTA>ON experience, I approached the interview process with a new level of confidence. I believe that attending ILTA>ON positioned me for success and supported me to find my next opportunity. I will be forever grateful that ILTA offered me its 2020 networking scholarship and look forward to continuing my professional journey with its supportive community. This is an amazing organization and I hope to contribute to its success in the future.”

And it will give you an overall great experience within the legal technology space.

"I originally became a member of ILTA when I worked for a law firm. Over 10 years ago when I switched to a job in a corporate legal department, I soon found my needs from this organization changed. The first ILTACON I attended as a corporate member I quickly found a new network of peers that have become invaluable to me over the course of my career. The corporate members were so welcoming and introduced me to the value I can get from my membership from the law department perspective. I enjoy participating in webinars, utilizing the Community of Interest and of course ILTACON. ILTA also has a Corporate Legal page on their website with helpful resources and information. I think the main difference in this organization vs other professional associations is our membership goes beyond GC’s, attorneys and Legal Operation professionals. I am most grateful for the meaningful personal connections I had made over the years."

Vanessa Lozzi

Senior Legal Technology and Litigation Support Administrator | Assistant Vice President at Legal Department at Flagstar Bank

"Ever since joining ILTA 6 years ago, I’m amazed at the level of continual knowledge sharing and collaborations amongst the members. Member volunteer their time to plan awesome educational contents (ILTACON, Virtual Sessions, Local Events, etc.) and eager to help with questions posted on the Community eGroups. Personally, it’s the professional connections that comes with working on educational sessions and volunteering together on events. Because of this external pool of resources that I can leverage, my contributions to my organization are that much more enriched!"

George Chui

Director, Systems Development, Global Technology at Prudential Financial

"I really enjoy sharing thought leadership pieces with the ILTA community. It’s always great to share the work I am doing with my peers across the industry, but the real value comes with the rich conversations that follow. And those conversations foster great new relationships, and they always give me exciting new ideas to bring back to my firm around new ways to use data or how to improve the users experience."

Rachel Shields Williams

Director, Knowledge Management Technology at Sidley Austin LLP

"Keno Kozie has been a supporter of ILTA for many years. In addition to sponsoring their Annual Conference, we have done everything from taking part in Roadshows to advertising and authoring articles in their quarterly publication – Peer to Peer. We have found them to be a great organization for us to be part of and enjoy being able to look for opportunities to share our knowledge and expertise with their members. Being able to provide content through bylined articles and white papers for Peer to Peer has proven to be a great way for us to communicate with the ILTA members on topics that are relevant, valuable and timely to their organization."

When I started in legal a little over four years ago, I knew from past experience that the best way to learn is through mentoring and online resources. The ILTA online community is the best resource in LegalTech. You to pick the brains of professionals at every level from hundreds of firms. Regardless of the size of a firm, ILTA members are always happy to help and provide the best recommendations and insight. Not only that, there are vendor specific forums where you can hear from them directly. You may even make some friends as I have along the way. We are a community that grows by helping each other. I highly recommend the ILTA communities and getting involved as often as you can!

All ILTAns have opportunities to grow their thought leadership

Whether you are an ILTA Member, Business Partner, or Participant, you can influence the legal technology community by being active in ILTA.

ILTA VP of Service Delivery Dawn Hudgins and VP of Business Partner Development Jason Stookey share some examples of how to do so and why. 

"I love ILTA forums. The knowledge I have obtained has paid for my membership several times over. I read about things over my head, answer things I have experience with and ask specific questions about things important to my firm. Specifically, I have chosen a backup solution due to ILTA forum suggestions, changed User Rights for security, purchased a Large File Transfer solution also due to ILTA info. I have no doubt our firm has a much more secure environment because of what I have pulled from ILTA forums. Additionally I believe I get a sense of what solutions are good values and save money from that knowledge."

Jeff Wyatt

ILTA Member and Chief Administrative Officer at McMahon Surovik Suttle, PC

"ILTA online communities have given me the tools needed to grow as an IT professional in the legal industry. It has allowed me to network with those in different geographic locations and provide me with insights to trends in technology. It is a great resource that I have available to me."

Devin Jaundoo

ILTA Member and Manager, Cloud & Infrastructure Services at Lenczer Slaght Royce Smith Griffin LLP

FOUR REASONS ILTA ONLINE COMMUNITIES ARE IMPORTANT TO MEMBERS.


1. Allows me to network with my peers of similar positions.

2. Gives me the pulse of the legal industry.I’m consistently asked by my executive management team what are other law firms doing and are we using the best of breed of applications.The community forum provides these answers.

3. In certain forums such as Desktop & Application Services, Microsoft –Desktop Applications, iManage, and User Support Services provide first notification of issues as they are happening.

4. When troubleshooting an issue, the community forum is my first place to look sometimes before a google search.
