Future of Investing

And while everyone else is sitting on the sidelines believing cryptocurrency is just for drug dealers and money launderers (spoiler alert … it’s not), Bitcoin, first created in 2009 and trading in 2013 at only around $13.50 USD/coin, is now valued in the thousands. Find out why and learn the difference between a blockchain and Bitcoin. Learn how to safely and legally buy, hold, invest and trade cryptocurrency. And buy your first Bitcoin!

Future of Work

You don’t have time to waste in this fast-paced digital economy. And guess what? Employers don’t have the time to wait for you either.

Will legal ed and the practice of law pivot to meet the #neweconomy & #futureofwork?

“Lawyers aren’t going away. But the way we work is changing.”

Today’s client and, more importantly tomorrow’s client, demands that lawyers keep pace with the #futureofwork in the #neweconomy. Here’s where I think we are and where we HAVE to go.

How do you foresee this directly impacting the legal industry?

Asked by interviewer Adam Keirstead

Dean Evans

Well, there’s a really interesting move in the legal industry to prepare lawyers to have conversations with technologists in the IT department and those who are coding to leverage the existing master contracts that we have in order to figure out ways that we can automate certain functions.

Essentially, there are master agreements underneath that lawyers do, and there’s coding the coders and IT specialists do. They need to be able to talk to each other. This is an area that’s ripe for innovation on the law side.

Lawyers won’t go away, but the way that lawyers are interacting with business people, and in terms of our advice and how we work with them is going to certainly change!

Is the innovation ecosystem wasted on the young? Why startups aren’t just for those starting out in life.

By Professor Tonya M. Evans

Why startups aren’t just for those starting out in life

Innovation isn’t just for the young (READ: Millennials & Gen Zers of the world). Sometimes youth actually impedes success in the latest wild, wild west that is innovation and tech. Experience, knowledge, and wisdom after a few decades of earning and learning are evergreen and invaluable, in my humble (and mature) opinion. I believe that life-long, intellectually curious learners are also (and especially) poised to contribute and, of course, to profit.

Neha Trhiani Bahri wrote about this topic earlier this year in an article published by Quartz Magazine. She explained that although the startup ecosystem seems to “worship the young,” research actually shows that people are most innovative when they’re older. Bahri cites a 2016 study (pdf) by the Information Technology & Innovation Foundation “that looked at the demographics of over 900 individuals who have made high-value meaningful, marketable contributions to technology-heavy industries in the US.” The findings are illuminating and very encouraging for those entering or already in the second or third chapters of life:  Continue reading “Is the innovation ecosystem wasted on the young?
