La Touche Training is the organiser of the biggest Legal Technology annual conference in Ireland.
The virtual Legal Tech conference took place on 25th March 2021.
The conference gathered law firms, government departments, corporates, general counsel, in-house lawyers, regulatory agencies, eDiscovery providers, advisors and much more under one roof for an enlightening day focusing on best practices and the latest trends and developments.
For its seventh year, we were delighted to re-brand our eDiscovery & Legal Tech annual conference to "Legal Tech Ireland 2021". This is the first year we weren't able to gather in a face to face setting, but were very pleased to be able to bring leading speakers and cutting-edge subjects to a virtual format.
We were also delighted to be joined by Richard Susskind for a key note address on "The Future of Courts".
Our event this year took place on the 25th March 2021 and covered a wide range of Legal Tech topics including:
The panel of speakers included members of the judiciary, senior counsel, leading solicitors, technical experts and thought leaders – both domestic and an international dimension with contributions from the US, UK and Germany.
