After much speculation about the future of Legalweek – one of the world’s largest and most-anticipated legal technology and legal business conferences – the conference’s organizers announced on Oct. 1 that it will be virtual in 2021.

ALM Media, which produces Legalweek, said the conference will be rebranded as Legalweek(year) and will be extended into a full year of events, leading up to a resumption of the in-person event in February 2022.

On this special edition of LawNext, Mark Fried, CFO and president of events at ALM Media and the man in charge of legalweek, joins host Bob Ambrogi to provide more details about the conference and discuss what it means for attendees and exhibitors.
