The Top 50 Legal Innovators, Techies, Visionaries, and Leaders

Fastcase 50The 2013 Fastcase 50:  Honoring the Law's Smartest, Most Courageous Innovators, Techies, Visionaries, and Leaders:

2013 was the Year of Reinvention, with innovators gathering at several national conferences pushing the boundaries of the business of law, using software, algorithms, and new pricing models for lawyers as a way to better provide legal services to the middle class. New companies challenged our assumptions about legal research, and established challengers hit their stride as much larger enterprises. Bar associations and law professors sought to change some of the most traditional legal organizations serving law students and lawyers. The Fastcase 50 classes of 2011 and 2012 were an inspiration. This year, you submitted a record number of nominations, and we are pleased to honor the Fastcase 50 Class of 2013.

Among this year's honorees from legal education are:

  • Bob Berring, Jr. (Walter Perry Johnson Professor of Law, UC-Berkeley School of Law)
  • Josh Blackman (Assistant Professor of Law, South Texas College of Law)
  • Elizabeth Dobbins (J.D. 2013, University of Virginia School of Law)
  • Sara Frug (Associate Director, Legal Information Institute, Cornell Law School)
  • William Henderson (Professor of Law and Director, Center on the Global Legal Profession, Indiana University Maurer School of Law)
  • Ken Hirsh (Director of Law Library and Information Technology and Professor of Practice, University of Cincinnati College of Law; Member, Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction Board of Directors)
  • Daniel Martin Katz (Assistant Professor of Law, Michigan State University College of Law; Co-Founder and Co-Director, ReInvent Law)
  • Renee Newman Knake (Associate Professor of Law, Michigan State University College of Law; Co-Founder and Co-Director, ReInvent Law)
