Our one-day virtual summit is an opportunity for legal aid groups, probono firms, non-profits, law firms, and other organizations across the legal space to learn about, discuss, and share legal tech innovation and ways to tackle the evolving cyber threat landscape.

Lawyers are increasing their use of technology to serve the needs of their clients. The benefits of this technology are self-evident. However, this increasing dependency comes at the price of ensuring adequate cyber security to protect client information, maintain ethical duties, and comply with the regulations. It is the mission of this summit to provide ways to tackle these technological challenges for the legal industry.
