Here’s a run-down on the latest developments with the LawTech Futures event that Legal IT Insider is running in conjunction with NetLaw Media in London on 30th April. And we also have this neat infographic to summarise some of the data.

With 47 days to go, over 700 people have already signed up to attend (including delegates from 23 of the UK’s Top 25 law firms) and the event is well on its way to an early sell-out. Because this is a conference, there is a limit on space so please register early – full details here http://lawtechfutures.com/delegate-registration

We are also very pleased to see the event has broken out of the IT cul-de-sac and is attracting a large number of senior law firm managers, including finance directors. We anticipate 30% + of delegates will fall into this category, timely recognition that legal IT has a strategic role to play and is now viewed by progressive firms as an asset rather than just another back-office overhead.

And it is not just delegates who need to act soon, on the vendor front all 60+ exhibition opportunities have sold out and there are currently 17 suppliers on a waiting list. Sponsorship opportunities have also been selling fast and there are now just two remaining packages. For details email Darren Armstrong at darmstrong@netlawmedia.com

We’ve also added to the conference programme. Our latest speaker is Seth Berman, UK executive managing director of Stroz Friedberg. Seth wrote an excellent article for us in September on why law firms need to rethink their online security and can no longer assume that hacking is something that only happens to governments. legaltechnology.com/latest-news/law-firms-security-requires-rethink/
