On Tuesday next week, the combined Legalweek/Legaltech kicks off in New York, one of the world’s largest conferences devoted to legal technology and the business of law. But on Monday night, a pre-conference program will consider, “How To Build A Better Tech Show.”

Sponsored by Above the Law and Evolve the Law, five panelists — me among them — will discuss how attendees and vendors can make the most of legal trade shows, how to navigate Legalweek, and how to make conferences more compelling, timely and relevant.

Speakers will be:

  • Joe Patrice (moderator), senior editor, Above the Law.
  • Me.
  • Jenevra Georgini, associate general counsel at American International Group.
  • Dera Nevin, senior associate attorney, information governance and e-discovery, at Baker McKenzie.
  • Dean Sonderegger, VP, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the panel begins at 7 p.m., followed by continued networking, demos and cocktails.

All proceeds will be donated to The Legal Aid Society of New York.
