TIME TO UPGRADE
YOUR PRACTICE

EvolveLaw is a new organization dedicated to
pushing the legal profession to adopt new
technologies and embrace innovations by
connecting lawyers, law schools, firms, and others to
legal tech companies such as LegalZoom and
LawLytics. Founders Mary Juetten of Traklight, an
intellectual property protection company, and Jules
Miller of BRAVA Investments believe the legal industry
is more likely to evolve than be disrupted in a rapidly
changing landscape. Membership includes access to
legal tech events, law firm consulting, networking
opportunities, and deep discussions on technology
and the future of law. The Website also offers plenty
of resources, including blogs, videos, and a podcast
series featuring legal tech experts.

13TH AMENDMENT'S
UNINTENDED LEGACY

Directed by Ava DuVernay, the celebrated director of
Selma, 13th is a striking documentary on mass
incarceration in the United States, especially focused
on people of color. The Thirteenth Amendment
outlawed slavery except as punishment for crime, but
the film posits that mass incarceration is a
modern-day version of it. 13th explores topics such as
Jim Crow, the prison industrial complex, increased
segregation in American society, and the justice
system, providing a harrowing look at American
history with commentary from figures such as activist
Angela Davis and former House Speaker Newt
Gingrich. The film is an intense but sobering look at
the state of race and justice in the United States today.
Available to stream on Netflix.
