Darla Jackson Appointed to ABA TECHSHOW 2021 Planning Board

May 22, 2020 | By Rebeka Morales, Event and Communications Coordinator

OU College of Law Research and Electronic Resources Librarian Darla Jackson has been appointed to the ABA TECHSHOW 2021 Planning Board. While the academic track of TECHSHOW has been ongoing for a few years, the track was expanded in 2020 and re-designated the Next 20. Academics previously assisted in providing guidance for the track, but Jackson says this is the first year that an individual from academia has participated as an appointed member of the TECHSHOW Planning Board.

“Given OU College of Law’s emphasis on technology innovation, I am delighted that the ABA Law Practice Division selected a representative from OU,” Jackson said. She added that it is certainly beneficial for a number of OU Law Students to be able to obtain sponsorship to attend ABA TECHSHOW each year.

The ABA TECHSHOW is a three-day conference and expo for law students, lawyers, legal professionals and technologists. Through a combination of educational programs and legal technology vendors, attendees have the opportunity to earn CLE credit and view demonstrations of helpful legal technology products and services. Both Jackson and Kenton Brice, OU Law’s director of technology innovation, have previously participated as ABA TECHSHOW presenters.

Jackson joined the Law Library in 2018 as its Research and Electronic Resources Librarian. In addition to teaching the legal research component of the first-year Legal Research, Writing and Advocacy Program, she also serves as an instructor for OU Law’s Online Master of Legal Studies in International Business Program.

Prior to joining the College of Law, Jackson worked as part of the Management Assistance Program staff at the Oklahoma Bar Association. In that role, she assisted attorneys in improving the management of their practices and firms, often through the use of technology. Her interest in technology began while serving as a judge advocate in the U.S. Air Force and she continues to explore ways that technology can be used to positively affect the delivery of legal services. She was recognized as a member of the Fastcase 50 Class of 2019.
