Lawyers Can Be Avatars
Stephen Embry, of TechLaw Crossroads, interviewed Kevin Ryan, the Executive Director of the Monroe County Bar Association about his experience with our EDRM Virtual Campus. The Monroe County Bar’s Small Firm and Solo Practice Conference was held in early April 2021.
While some felt that the avatar experience would be too challenging for small and solo practitioners, Kevin Ryan had no pushback from his constituents.
According to Ryan:
Stephen Embry attended our first virtual event on eDiscovery Day with this to say:
We could have our avatars roam around a campus. We could attend the sessions or get up and leave. We could wander around an exhibit hall, bump into people you knew (each avatar is identified by name), and have actual conversations. If you were bored, you could explore the campus, go to a virtual beach, even drive a virtual boat. Happy hours? You were free to walk around, meet up with people, walk up to people in small groups and join the conversation.
