Thanks for replying.
Apparently, my request was not sufficiently clear. I am looking for an organization whose activities include a significant amount of social networking. I want to network with other "nerd lawyers," lawyers who know a lot about IT. I am trying to leave the IT profession as quickly as I can, and I need to network with other lawyers in order to do that. I am especially interested in meeting nerd lawyers who know a lot about electronic data discovery (EDD), which is, today, probably the hottest area of automated litigation support (ALS).
I left the law back in 1995 because, back in those days, the job market for lawyers was lousy and the job market for IT professionals was excellent. How things have changed! These days, the job market for lawyers who know certain aspects of ALS is excellent. Alas, I am finding that switching back to the law is going to be harder than I had initially hoped.
