You love technology, you love the law, and you want a career that combines the two. But what kinds of legal tech jobs will be the most in demand, and how can you get them?
E-discovery and privacy law should be two areas that legal tech job-seekers look into, Shannon Capone Kirk tells the ABA Journal’s Stephanie Francis Ward in this episode of Asked and Answered.
Kirk, who is e-discovery counsel at Ropes & Gray, first got her start as an associate after being assigned a case with a warehouse full of digital tapes to be analyzed, she tells Ward. Within a few years, she’d started her own e-discovery practice.
But privacy law is also a burgeoning field for tech-savvy attorneys, particularly in government and the healthcare industry, Kirk says.
In this episode of Asked and Answered, Kirk shares tips on how to break into the field of e-discovery, and how associates can use their legal technology skills to get ahead.
