This year's Legal IT conference, Legal IT 4.0, is scheduled for April 26 and 27th. Each year the conference looks at information technology and its impact on the law. I was fortunate to attend last year's conference, and found the audience and presenters to be a stimulating mix of thought leaders and those new to many of the concepts.
The program has largely been set, and the 50-plus speaker roster is being finalized. The subject areas being covered:
- Cyber crime
- IT in courtrooms
- Tech Showcase – written communications
- Early adopters
- Tech Showcase – research and processing results
- Intellectual Property
- Tips and Tricks at the office and elsewhere
- Tech Showcase: cloud computing
- Commercial law
- In-house lawyers
- Tech Showcase: law firm management
The Plenary on Day 1 will be Countering spam by legislative means in Canada(Bill C-27) by the Honourable Yoine Goldstein Ad. E. Plenary for Day 2 is scheduled as Controversy surrounding Google Books and the Book Rights Registry by Charles S. Morgan.
Early bird registration is available until March 12th.
