In a few weeks (on Friday Oct 4, 2013) the Pacific Legal Technology Conference will be taking place at the new West Convention Center on the waterfront in Vancouver.
I think this is the best legal technology conference in the country. And even better – this year people from right across Canada can easily attend because all the sessions at the conference will be webcast.
I am disappointed that I can’t attend or speak this year because of conflict. As a past attendee and speaker, I can say you will get the same high quality content, speakers and materials that you would get at ABA Techshow. The PLTC is seeking full MCLE/CPD credit in all jurisdictions that require it.
The conference has a fantastic selection of sessions on the hottest and most relevant legal technology topics: “Apps Apps Apps & Tablets: Where Do They Fit Your Practice?”, “Document Management and Document Automation in a Paperless World”, “All the Gadgets, Sites and More We can Squeeze into 60 Minutes”, “Backups, Security, Privacy and Ethics in a Mobile World” and “Ethically Growing your Practice with Social Media”. There will be discussions of ethics, security and other considerations relevant to a lawyer operating in today’s Cloud-based world. Sessions such as “The Frugal Law Firm – Tech Essentials on a Budget” and “Tech Applied to Dull Ordinary Things that MUST Get Done” and “ePayments and eBilling” indicate that this conference is well-grounded in how lawyers must use technology to simply get work done and get paid for it once it is done.
Head to Vancouver or attend the conference online – you won’t be disappointed! Visit the PLTC site for more details.
