LPM is proud to announce that three of our book authors have been named to the Fastcase 50 class of 2013. Congratulations to Carole Levitt, Sharon Nelson, and Mark Rosch for being recognized as among “the law’s smartest, most courageous innovators, techies, visionaries, and leaders.”
Here’s more information about this year’s honorees:
Carole Levitt, President & Founder, Internet for Lawyers
For more than 20 years, Carole Levitt has been thinking about legal research – how it works, how it might be better – and teaching others how to use the internet effectively in the practice of law. A nationally recognized speaker, Carole dives into the details of how legal research search engines and automated citators actually work. She is the author of several books about online legal research, including the two-volume ABA publication Find Info Like a Pro series and is a co-author of The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet, one of the leading sources for legal research services and resources.
Sharon Nelson, President, Virginia State Bar and President, Sensei Enterprises
When Sharon Nelson started Sensei Enterprises in 1997, the tech world was very different. Cloud computing usually involved a laptop and an airplane. Since then, Sharon has written 11 books, hundreds of articles, and has taught lawyers across the country about everything from security to forensics to e-discovery. Sharon’s most recent books include The 2013 Solo and Small Firm Legal Technology Guide and Locked Down: Information Security for Lawyers. This year, Sharon and her husband (and business partner) John Simek will rebalance their schedules as she serves as the President of the Virginia State Bar. They are accustomed to scheduling. Sharon is the Vice Chair of the American Bar Association’s Education Board and a former Chair of its Publishing Board; the Virginia Supreme Court also has appointed her to the Statewide E-Filing Committee beginning in 2010.
Mark Rosch, Vice President & Co-Founder, Internet For Lawyers
Mark Rosch, co-author of The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet and 6 ABA-published books including the recent Google Gmail and Calendar in One Hour for Lawyers, helps legal professionals navigate the free and low-cost sources on the Web to meet their due diligence requirements for investigative and background research. Mark also speaks to lawyers about how they can put the cloud-based productivity tools offered by Google to use in their practice.
