What is MILOfest?
MILOfest was born out of the Macs in the Law Office Google Group (MILO), a discussion listserv for legal professionals using Macs and iOS products in their law offices. The group, which began in 2007 now has nearly 5,000 members. It’s free to join.
MILOfest is an annual conference that brings together legal professionals from around the continent to network, share tips, and learn from the experts on how to best use Apple products in the law office.
Why Should I Attend?
First off, this niche conference is unrivaled. I know of nothing else tailored to attorneys using Macs or iOS products (or, thinking about using) in their law practices.
Second, the conference attracts some of the best speakers who design their content specifically for MILOfest attendees. And, in an intimate setting, encouraged by dinners, happy hours, and other networking opportunities, you’ll have the opportunity to chat directly with the speakers.
Third, the conference content is thoughtfully prepared. Attendees learn from live demonstrations and participation is encouraged. This year’s content will follow the “LifeCycle of a Law Firm”, with topics such as “Setting Up the Office”, “Running the Back Office”, and “Hiring and Managing Staff”.
For more information about MILOfest, check out my recap after MILOfest 2013 and interview with Victor Medina, conference organizer. Folks will be chatting about MILOfest in the weeks to come via #MILOfest.
