Legal Week has just been in touch to say their fourth annual Strategic Technology Forum is still taking place in Spain on 10-12 June – there had been rumours that it was going to 'do a Legal Technology Awards'.  They say 'more than 50 CIOs and IT directors from leading law firms from across Europe and North America will discuss how technology can help create business efficiency, add value and help improve the bottom line.' The forum, which has the theme ‘Strategic thinking in a challenging market – preparing for the upturn’ will be co-chaired by Abby Ewen, IT director, Simmons & Simmons and Simon Thompson, global chief operating officer, Linklaters.

'No' they haven't sent us an invite – but we don't actually care as the dates clash with production deadlines. And 'yes' we'd love to know if they really do get more than 50 CIOs and IT directors to attend.
