What's European in Legal Tech?

BERLIN, 15-16 JUNE, 2017

Given the fact that the vast majority of the investment in Legal Tech is put towards funding solutions related to US litigation, such as e-discovery, we were wondering what the “European” element in Legal Tech could be.

The conference will focus on bringing Legal Tech pioneers from various European countries together to exchange views, ideas, experiences, practical solutions and approaches to Legal Tech combining the numerous small national and regional Legal Tech “campfires” to create a huge signal fire for European Legal Tech.

At the conference, we are also aiming to highlight how different legal spheres might potentially influence and affect the design and implementation of technology and software supported solutions and processes in the European legal market.

The conference addresses both members of the ELTA network and non-members.
