Extract from Donna Payne's article "Monica Bay: Rock & Roll to Lawyer and Journalist – and points between

Interview conducted by Donna Payne, founder and futurist of PayneGroup

Monica Bay is a journalist, lawyer and provocateur. As a Fellow at CodeX: The Stanford Center for Legal Informatics, she focuses on the CodeX Blog. Additionally, she writes for numerous publications and co-hosts a podcast on Legal Talk Network.

Monica worked at ALM (neé American Lawyer Media) for 30 years — first as senior editor at The Recorder in San Francisco, where she covered the organized bar. In 1998, she moved to New York to be the editor-in-chief of Law Technology News (now Legaltech News). She retired from ALM in 2015.

What Monica’s professional profile doesn’t show, however, is the level of influence she’s had in shaping the careers of many people in leadership positions today. So much so that in 2014 the Monica Bay STEM Leadership committee and annual Monica Bay STEM Leadership Award was established.

Monica remains one of my mentors, a friend, and inspiration.  It was a true privilege interviewing her for this piece. Get ready to laugh as we dive in and get to know Monica Bay.

What is your current location?                          

Often on United Airlines heading west or on the Metro North train to New York City. When not traveling, I'm at the northwest corner of Connecticut.

Summarize “a day in the life of Monica Bay”.

If I'm home, I'm probably at my computer writing or podcasting, or on the phone. In addition to the CodeX Blog, I currently write for Thomson Reuters' Legal Executive Institute: The Justice Ecosystem; Above the Law columnist ("The Circuit"); the Women of Legal Tech series for Legaltech News; and I co-host (with Robert Ambrogi) Law Technology Now podcast. If it's between April and October, you may find me playing hooky at Yankee Stadium. [I am a California attorney, but I don't practice.]
