Len Polsky

Manager, Legal Technology and Mentorship, the Law Society of Alberta

Len is originally from Montreal where he earned Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Civil Law and Bachelor of Common Law degrees from McGill University.  

After graduating, he studied in The Hague and worked at a law firm in Geneva, Switzerland.  

When he returned to Canada, it was in Alberta that he put down his roots.  

Len was in private practice for almost 30 years and was Managing Partner of his own litigation boutique firm where his practice focused on complex commercial litigation and employment law disputes.  

The insight he developed serving as legal counsel gave him first-hand knowledge of the challenges and opportunities that practicing law presents and helped him understand the many ways that technology can level the playing field and improve the delivery of law. 

Today he serves as the Law Society of Alberta’s Manager of Legal Technology & Mentorship. He is responsible for developing, implementing and managing the Law Society’s practice technology programs and is a member of the Innovating Regulation Group overseeing the rollout of the Law Society’s Innovation Sandbox project. He also established and directs the Mentor Connect, Mentor Express and Locum Connect programs for lawyers in Alberta.
