LPO Summit 2008: Coverage from Blogosphere

LPO Summit 2008, the first discussion on agenda of which perhaps happened with this blogger (see email snippets from Aug and Sep 07 below) was perhaps the biggest event for LPO till date. That its "Program Director" was a rather thankless person does not make the conference any less significant. The first and continuous free marketing for the conference happened on this blog through a sticky post.

Due to the sour experience, this blog did not cover the event in any way. Here are some other places to check out though:
  • Ron Friedman's excellent posts on best practices, ethical issues, setting up of operations, business models, first-hand experiences and the future of legal process outsourcing
  • HireTrade blog post
  • Reaction from a recent US law graduate to comments made at the conference
  • piece

Finally, not related to the conference, but here is Mark Ross' excellent must-read post summarizing 2007 and the coming years for LPO.

Great – this is exactly what we need. Here is the agenda to the event.

Once again, thanks for speaking with me. As I had mentioned it would be great if we can utilize the blog to mention the conference on a periodic basis. Nothing fancy, just that a conference about LPO is taking place in Jan in New York and interested people can contact me directly. If we can also highlight a few speaker companies – that will get the interests going.

Hello Rahul,

I hope you are well! I have finished the LPO program and wanted to send you the brochure and the url for the blog.

I was wondering if there is any way we can make a banner ad for the url, so it stays on the front page all the time.
