SOLID Working Groups

Working Groups

Industry Thought Leaders

SOLID Working Groups offer a unique opportunity to lead, learn, and collaborate with your peers and industry thought leaders.

During SOLID 2017 in NYC, summit attendees broke out into various birds of a feather groups to converse, ask questions, and share knowledge around the most pressing issues, pain points, challenges and barriers that leaders are facing in the legal technology industry. From this collaborative work and every SOLID since, our working groups continuously evolve and sprint for 6 months and are comprised of over 80 industry thought leaders from law firms and corporations across the United States.

SOLID Working groups offer a unique opportunity to engage with your peers and colleagues in an intimate and agile way that has never existed before. Working group members have committed to a 6-month sprint toward creating a tangible work-product that will inform, instruct and inspire the community. Each group is comprised of 10-20 members, meeting every two weeks by phone to focus on a problem they are looking to solve. Working group members are able to present their public work-products at various  benchmark events such as SOLID, LTNY, ILTA and CLOC over the course of the 6-month sprint.
