'Ignite Law' Set for Return Appearance at ABA TechShow

[non]billable hour blogger Matthew Homann of LexThink has announced that Ignite Law 2 is coming to the next ABA TechShow, being held April 11-13 in Chicago.

An Ignite event is typically an evening of mini-lectures, with presenters each being allotted five minutes and 20 PowerPoint slides to share their passions. Presenters' slides automatically advance every 15 seconds, making for a fast-paced night of topics.

In a nod to familiar time and billing increments, Ignite stretches the time limits slightly for Ignite Law, allowing each presenter 18 seconds per slide, for a total of six minutes.

The first Ignite Law event [video] was held at last year's ABA Tech Show and featured such well-known members of the legal community as [click for additional video links] Ari KaplanCarolyn Elefant and Niki Black.

Ignite was started by Brady Forrest of O'Reilly Media and Bre Pettis of Makerbot.com, with the first such event occurring in Seattle in 2006. The events have grown to the point that the recent Global Ignite Week featured more than 50 Ignite events on six continents.

I've personally been involved with Ignite Phoenix since 2009, when I had the honor of presenting on "Frosting the Law" [video].

Judging from last year's presentations, the Ignite Law sssions at this year's ABA TechShow are not to be missed!

Guest blogger Ruth Carter is a law student in her final semester at Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.
