South by Southwest started as a music festival, but attorneys know the event, which has morphed into much more and includes film and interactive tracks, is also a great place to network and learn more about emerging legal issues.

The 2014 festival schedule is filled with continuing legal education (CLE) and other law-related sessions, and the Texas Bar Journal will be there to cover them.

The TBJ team received press credentials to report on the event, which runs from March 7 to March 16 in Austin. You can follow the coverage on Twitter (hashtag: #sxsbot), Facebook, InstagramStorify, and the Texas Bar Blog for recommended panels, updates, and photos.

Also on Twitter, you can follow TBJ editors Lindsay Stafford Mader (@LSMader) and Hannah Kiddoo (@hkid) and State Bar public information director Lowell Brown (@LowellMBrown), who will be tweeting live from the events.

The March 2014 Texas Bar Journal has several stories on SXSW, including a lawyer’s guide to law-related events. Read the expanded guide at

And don’t miss the May issue, which will feature an overview of the festival’s legal experience.
