#045: Gabriel Teninbaum - Legal Innovation and Productization Expert


In this episode I speak with Professor Gabriel Teninbaum who is the Assistant Dean of Innovation, Strategic Initiatives & Distance Education at Suffolk University Law School and Professor of Legal Writing. He teaches, writes, speaks, and consults on the technology of law and recently published the book Productizing Legal Work: Providing Legal Expertise at Scale and runs the Lawtomatic newsletter which I strongly recommend for anyone interested in legal tech. In addition to his work at Suffolk, Gabe is a Visiting Fellow at the Yale Information Security Project and the Founder and CEO of Spaced Repetition Systems LLC. Prior to Law School, Gabe worked as an Operations Support Technician in the United States Secret Service. 

In our conversation we discuss his path to legal innovation, how being an active consumer of technology led him to becoming an expert in the technology of law, how lawyers (junior and senior) can work in legal tech and innovation, the opportunities provided by no code and low code tools to productize legal services to provide better and more affordable representation by shifting the one-to-one model to a one-to-many model, the future of legal practice and legal education when it comes to tech and innovation, the power of spaced repetition, and how to manage attention in our fast-paced world, and more.
