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.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!

As a trial lawyer, day-to-day information processing is daunting for my client service. I’ve come to rely on ACEDS to keep me on the ‘edge’ of the curve on e-discovery. It’s a source I ‘ping’ ASAP.
