Today, much of the legal IT community in the UK, as well as a healthy share of US legal tech professionals, are convening at the QEII Conference Centre in London for the sold out event, LawTech Futures 2013 – The Future of Legal Technology’.
Following a strong debut in 2012, LawTech Futures (LTF) producers Netlaw Media and Charles Christian of the Legal Technology Insider have upped the ante with a ‘bigger and better’ approach in terms of number of delegates, exhibitors, educational sessions and speakers. For all the details, check out LTF statistics infographic or full event brochure.
LTF 2013 features three presentation stages - Main Stage, Lounge Stage & Demonstration Stage - including a 400 seat conference room hosting 10+ hours of content delivered by 40 speakers & panelists including keynoter Ray Kurzweil; leading IT/EDD consultant Andrew Haslam; Neil Cameron, Founder Neil Cameron Consulting Group; White & Case Head of KM Oz Benamram; Norton Rose's Sam Dimond; Jason Plant of DLA Piper; and Herbert Smith Freehills CIO Haig Tyler.
Here's our top two session picks:
- "Managing Innovation in an Era of Accelerating Technology": Keynote speaker Ray Kurzweil looks to touch on all the current 'biggies' - leveraging tech to deliver better legal services; recognizing disruptive forces and capitalizing on them; virtual reality will bring us all closer, how can law firms take advantage?
- "Big Data Analytics - Innovating Services in a Rapidly Changing World": Big data is a favorite topic of ours these days, especially since most legal professionals still don't know what to do with it. This LTF session is lead by the EMEA Lead of Business Solutions for Google, Matt McNeill, so hopefully he'll be able to demystify and surely add fuel to the big data fire.
When not attending LTF sessions, delegates will be able to check out 65 exhibiting companies spanning all aspects of legal technology and services. According to Charles Christian, 45% of all exhibitors are from outside the UK.
