The American Legal Technology Awards will hold its first in-person Gala on October 9, 2022, to recognize innovators in the legal industry. In its third year, it’s the first time they will gather together and celebrate the awards and winners.
Created by Patrick Palace, Cat Moon, and Tom Martin, the awards “hold up examples of excellence in creative innovation and technology in the legal industry for the purposes of 1) expanding our understanding of what is possible, 2) encouraging a virtuous cycle of improvement, and 3) creating a more just society.”
The award recognizes industry innovators in 8 categories: Access to Justice, Startup, Enterprise, Technology, Law Firm, Individual, Court, and Law Department. “We’re really excited to recognize the work that is being done by different people and groups across the industry,” said Tom Martin, awards co-founder. “Their work is inspiring and deserves to be shared with the larger community.”
Some consider it the “Oscars” of the legal tech community (also affectionately known as the Law Prom). Accordingly, organizers hope the awards will encourage and inspire innovations throughout the legal industry.
“We want to bring the community together and celebrate and elevate the winners and the amazing work they are doing with a James-Bond-worthy event,” said event co-founder Patrick Palace. “This won’t be like other industry events. We’re bringing the glamor and glitz, so don’t be afraid to don your fancy shoes!”

Panelists and event sponsors include: Jack Newton, CEO of Clio, Ann Cosimano, General Counsel for ARAG Legal Insurance, Mark Homer, CEO of GNGF, along with representatives of LawPay and MyCase.
