NEW YORK – January 09, 2015 – ALM, the world’s largest legal media company and a leading provider of legal intelligence services, announced a collaboration with CodeX: The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics, a think tank of Stanford faculty and students, as well as professionals from key organizations working on the frontier of legal technology. The partnership will help provide compelling new educational content at both ALM’s LegalTech New York and LegalTech West Coast, the premier legal technology events in the U.S.

CodeX’s mission is to solve systemic problems in the law through the exchange of ideas around legal technology, which will empower individuals and impact our legal system for the better. A primary focus of its researchers is the development and implementation of computational law, the use of computers to translate legal rules and regulations at a moment’s notice.

“This new partnership between ALM and CodeX is particularly exciting because of our shared desire to build a strong community of legal technology professionals,” said Henry Dicker, vice president, ALM Events. “CodeX’s presence at LegalTech is a reflection of our commitment to this rapidly expanding field; we believe it will add an exciting new component to our already popular conferences, and introduce attendees to computational tools that will simplify compliance, consistency and transparency.”

In addition to leveraging CodeX’s legal informatics resources, ALM will be working with the CodeX team to introduce new companies to a market of nearly 13,000 LegalTech attendees by providing packages to eligible companies that offer a free exhibit space in a new pavilion on the trade show floor, as well as the opportunity to host thought leadership presentations on the pavilion stage.

“We appreciate the invitation from ALM to showcase cutting-edge legal technologies and premier thought leaders in the industry,” said Roland Vogl, executive director of CodeX. Dr. Vogl added, “We look forward to CodeX being a part of LegalTech New York and LegalTech West Coast, and increasing awareness of cutting-edge developments in the legal field.”
