Extract from Isha Marathe’s article “Public-Private Partnerships Vital for Legal Tech Access: A Chat With Judge Tanya R. Kennedy”
As more courts embraced technology over the past two years, it’s brought focus to access to justice gaps and some judges lack of tech knowledge. For Judge Tanya R. Kennedy, however, neither challenge is insurmountable.
Kennedy serves as an associate judge in the first division of the New York Supreme Court. She has had a long career in law, serving as a judge in New York’s courts since 2006, as a professor at Fordham University School of Law and later as president of the National Association of Women Judges.
Ahead of her session at Legalweek, Kennedy connected with Legaltech News to talk about the need for legal tech public-private partnerships, how judges have a responsibility to keep up with the evolution of legal tech, and how legal still has a long way to go when it comes to diversity.
Judge Tanya R. Kennedy is set to speak at the “Data Law Year in Review” Legalweek Session at 1:30 p.m. ET March 10.
