Since 2011, Fastcase has released an annual list of the Fastcase 50, honoring 50 of the law’s “smartest, most courageous, innovators, techies, visionaries, and leaders.” Fortunately, even though Fastcase merged earlier this year with vLex, that tradition continues, as Fastcase has now announced the 2023 honorees.
I say “fortunately” because, as I wrote when last year’s list was announced, the Fastcase 50 is probably the best-available roster of those who are leading the charge on innovation in law.
Over the years, the list has included a diverse selection of lawyers, legal technologists, policymakers, judges, law librarians, bar association executives, and people from all walks of life who are innovating in the legal profession. (I was honored to be in the inaugural Fastcase 50 class in 2011.
“This has been an amazing year of change for legal tech, including at vLex and Fastcase,” said Ed Walters, Fastcase co-founder and the Chief Strategy Officer of vLex.
