On the A-List for Innovators

Dean, professors named to Top 50 list

Staff Writer

Suffolk Law Professor Gabriel Teninbaum and Adjunct Professor David Colarusso have been named to the 2016 Fastcase 50. Dean Andrew Perlman was among the honorees on last year’s list. It’s an accolade reserved for the nation’s “smartest, most courageous innovators, techies, visionaries and leaders in the law.”


In its 2015 profile of Dean Perlman, Fastcase wrote: “It’s no wonder that Andy is invited to be a central part of every conversation about the future of legal services. He is the vice chair of the ABA Commission on the Future of Legal Services, and he served as chief reporter of the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20, among many other committees related to the future of law.”

Teninbaum is director of Suffolk Law’s Legal Technology and Innovation Concentration and its Institute on Law Practice Technology and Innovation. The Institute was named Pro Bono Innovator of the Year by LegalTech News in 2016.

Colarusso teaches basic coding, document automation, and the use of expert systems to solve legal problems. His profile in the ABA Journal notes: “Colarusso, 37, is a hacker. He’s happiest when doing a deep dive into an information system, finding problems and creating fixes.”
