Since its launch, the Forum has published more than 6,000 posts by 5,000 contributors, including prominent academics, public officials, executives, legal and financial advisors institutional investors, and other market participants. Reflecting its quality and impact, the Forum’s posts have been cited in more than 800 law review articles and regulatory materials. Leo Strine, the legendary former chief justice of the Delaware Supreme Court who is of counsel with Wachtell, said this about the Forum in the Harvard Law Bulletin: “[I]t is amazing to see the [Forum] become required reading among the intelligentsia, such as it is, of corporate governance.”
Dennis Kennedy’s blog – DennisKennedy.Blog – focuses on legal technology, technology law and beyond. A well-known legal tech and innovation advisor, law professor, infotech lawyer, speaker, author, and podcaster, Kennedy is well-equipped for the job. Dennis, who retired as Vice President, Senior Counsel for Mastercard’s Digital Payments and Labs group in 2017, teaches a course on Entrepreneurial Lawyering at Michigan State University. In a recent post on his blog, “The Biggest Disconnect in the Legal Industry,” Dennis discusses the hard-to-bridge innovation gap between clients and their outside counsel, who tend to think clients are waiting for them to swoop in and save the day. “Instead,” he writes, “clients want to be the heroes of their own innovation stories. They want a guide with a plan to help them win the prize while avoiding disaster. Think Yoda, not Superman.” Check out DennisKennedy.Blog. You won’t regret it.
