An #ignite preview: Katrina Lee

Leading up to Vanderbilt Law's Summit on Law and Innovation on April 30, 2018, we're sharing brief teasers of the provocative ideas our speakers will explore. Today, we get a glimpse into Katrina Lee's #ignite talk. Enjoy!

About Katrina Lee (@katrinajunelee)

Self-care. Be curious. Be mindful. Try new approaches. That’s some of the advice Katrina Lee shares with law students and tries to heed herself. Katrina is enjoying her 7th year as a full-time professor at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. Her innovative new course book on the business of law was released last fall. She wrote a law review article calling on law schools to link the curricular trends of mindfulness and legal technology. Before academia, she was a corporate litigator in San Francisco for 12 years, and an equity partner for about 6 of those years. A mother of two young daughters, Katrina readily discusses her year as a stay-at-home parent. Katrina earned her B.A. and J.D. degrees from the University of California at Berkeley. Passionate about preparing law students for law practice reality and leadership, Katrina teaches the business of law, legal writing, and legal negotiations.

What ideas will Katrina ignite at SoLI?

A fascinating, promising, and helpful national conversation about legal education is taking place. How can law schools better prepare tomorrow’s lawyers? What can law schools do to help connect and strengthen bonds among various silos in the legal community? What role can and should law schools play in increasing the diversity of voices heard and spoken in the legal profession? How can law school coursework provide critical context for learning in law school clinics, at law firms, in-house legal departments, and elsewhere?

Katrina will challenge participants with questions in her Ignite Talk that will have us reflecting on the place of law schools in tomorrow’s legal landscape. She’ll describe the foundational business of law course that she teaches. Ultimately, she will suggest the seeds of a project for #SoLI2018 participants to be planted in their local law school communities.

Join us at SoLI2018! Learn about big ideas, share your own, and be part of breaking down silos and building connections across the legal profession. Radical collaboration: we go faster, and farther, together.
