LegalTech New York 2012 was a great experience for me personally for a number of different reasons.  Going to New York, meeting industry leaders, and helping coordinate the largest journalistic project I’ve ever been involved with are just a few of those reasons.  However, my favorite part of LegalTech was getting a chance to sit in on some truly thought provoking sessions with government officials, legal practitioners, and scholars.  The last session I got an opportunity to cover was with Michigan State University Assistant Professor of Law Daniel Katz (Ph.D, J.D) (also an author on the Computational Legal Studies blog) and it was undoubtedly one of my favorites.  Afterwards Professor Katz wrapped up his session, Colin O’Keefe got the chance to talk with him about his research, and what’s new at MSU’s College of Law.
