ABOUT THIS EVENT

EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN ONE DAY

ILTA’s INSIGHT conference is back in London for a ninth year. Everyone who has attended in the past knows the educational programme is stellar. This year we’re moving to a convenient new venue to provide an even better learning and conversing environment. We’re aiming to make this the best year yet for delegates and supporters, an event that truly delivers on our twin promise of content and conversation.

 

Delegates Include:

C-level, Director and Manager Technologists, Litigation Support Managers, KM specialists, Technical Architects, Business Analysts, Subject Matter Experts, Attorneys

The International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) excels in delivering peer-developed educational content and networking opportunities. Please join the conversation and benefit from the collaborative exchange of knowledge with your colleagues in this ninth annual London-based event.

If you’re new to ILTA INSIGHT or just want a refresher on how we do things in London, here are five quick pointers:

 

INSIGHT 2014 is a one-day conference built around content designed and delivered by peers. There’s no other event out there that is created by its own audience.

Co-chairs Gareth Ash and Janet Day direct the content as developed by local law firm IT professionals. It’s a proper environment to listen and learn and engage – content isn’t a sideshow, it’s the main event.

 

The schedule includes a dynamic and entertaining keynote speaker; 16 educational sessions across four tracks: Strategic, Technical, Litigation Support and Knowledge Management; and time to network with colleagues and suppliers.

 

INSIGHT 2014 is absolutely free for anyone working in a law firm or in-house legal department. There is no registration fee!

 

You don’t have to be an ILTA member to attend, but INSIGHT 2014 is a great opportunity to find out more about the benefits of membership.

 

We restrict ourselves to a select and finite group of sponsor supporters who are there to contribute to the conversation.

Agenda

Keynote - Elliott Ichimura
Embracing Disruption at the Intersection of Business and IT Strategies
While alternative business structures, outsourcing and globalisation set the pace for industry (r)evolution, technology megatrends such as the cloud, mobility and social media continue to challenge the status quo. For firm leadership, it's not enough to respond to these disruptive forces –– leaders need to harness and capitalize on change. Come explore a strategic and proactive approach to alignment, prioritisation and investment in business technology.

Legal Project Management As a Competitive Tool
Legal project management (LPM) is a serious tool that can add value to legal activities whilst encouraging cooperation between project managers and lawyers. LPM improves efficiency both internally and externally, and it can forge close relationships with clients and lawyers, reinforcing new ways of thinking and ensuring the positive development of new services within a firm. Come hear a case study on the growth of legal project management within Danish law firm, Kromann Reumert, and the development of an independent profit department (dubbed "The Project Centre") that handles project management, document management and process management. Find out more about the techniques they've developed and how you can use them at your firm.

Hyperconnectivity and Legal Workflow: The Future Is Now
With the proliferation of mobile technology and more ways of staying connected than ever before, the days of work-life balance have become the pressures of work-life blur.

Come take a futuristic and innovative look at the legal practice of the future and how mobile technology will impact information professionals everywhere in our hyperconnected world.

The Privacy and Breach Notification Train – Full Steam Ahead!
How do you plan smarter in a converging and rapidly changing regulatory landscape? Let's discuss building a technology plan that asks the right questions and won’t put you in a bind with every regulatory change or new client the firm engages. We'll cover some of the challenges facing law firms operating across multiple countries with varying privacy and regulatory requirements, using a hosted data centre versus managing an internal data centre, compartmentalizing services or data sets subject to specific privacy regulations and more. Attendees will leave better prepared for doing business across borders today and tomorrow.

Tomorrow’s Security Protection Today
What are current challenges, from both security and operational perspectives, for small and large security teams? Let's review some emerging security technologies that are providing greater protection for law firm environments without changing the way attorneys or others need to work. We will also look at what you should be doing now or in the near future regarding security solutions on endpoints and servers; malware protection on mobile devices; analytics to crunch logs, detect anomalies and identify high risk threat actors; and much more. See how your security tools stack up!

CAR, TAR and PC
How do you negotiate the e-disclosure highway without getting into trouble? While predictive coding(PC) is good, it doesn’t work in all cases. We’ll take a look at examples of clustering, concept searching, email threading and near dups, and discuss computer-assisted review, technology-assisted review and PC options from practical experience.

Using the Cloud To Fill the Void Between the Business and the IT Department
Over the past decade, there has been an unprecedented change in the way legal services are acquired and delivered. Increased competition has forced law firms to improve their working practices and reduce operating costs. Unfortunately, expenditure is still increasing, and this is forcing IT directors to further justify their budgets and ultimately make additional savings. Law firms often are not simply looking for cost savings, they also want opportunities to increase revenue – in short, do more for less! Law firms typically have a high proportion of staff focused on operational activities, but whilst effective operational IT management is seen as good practice, it’s not a differentiator. However, using technology in an innovative way can make the difference, as it can assist lawyers in working more efficiently and enhancing client relationships. Is it possible to shift the direction of the IT department away from operational activities and align its delivery to the needs and demands of the business? Of course! See how the adoption of cloud computing can provide the opportunity to realign the IT resources and services you provide to truly support the lawyers in your firm. Shift the focus of your IT department away from "keeping the lights on" to being a true advisor

Mobility: Flexibility vs. Security
Access to the firm’s information and services from any device, anywhere is becoming a necessity for lawyers to provide the best level of client service. Allowing this flexibility can mean a loss of control over information as it gets distributed to many devices –– firm-provided and, potentially, personal. How do we maintain a balance between security of the client’s and firm’s information and providing simple mobile access to the information our lawyers need?
