THURSDAY, NOV 051:00 PM EDTAddressing Technophobia: Training Technologically Competent LawyersMuch has been said about the practical and ethical motivations behind the duty of technology competence for lawyers. Now, more than ever, clients expect legal counsel to demonstrate proficiency across a wide swath of technologies capable of transforming legal practice and offering greater overall value to a matter. Yet, for all the talk of duty and expectations, less attention is paid to how law firms and corporates actually train their legal talent, whether at the associate or partner level. This opening session examines some of the most successful tech-focused professional development initiatives in law firms and corporate legal departments today. Our panel will explore what strategies have—or have not—proven successful while operating in a highly competitive market.

THURSDAY, DEC 031:00 PM ETCentral Intelligence: Platform Interoperability Across the Legal ProfessionThe ability of “smart” technology to connect devices holds fantastic connotations for legal services. Consider how, in the current market, many law firms and corporates leverage disparate technologies for routine matters in the business of law. In theory, such thinking is healthy and reflective of legal technology’s diverse, crescendoing wave. But in a climate where cost pressures continue to mount, could a more streamlined approach be in order? This discussion examines the growing imperative for centralizing enterprise technology within a single interoperable platform. What considerations should business executives prioritize when designing a formal strategy? How are concerns surrounding privacy, security or data governance being addressed throughout the transformation process?
