Databases can contribute to making processes in law firms and legal departments more efficient. Especially when it comes to the exchange of highly sensitive data or information that requires special protection, in particular professional secrecy. For many years, many law firms have relied on data room providers such as dataroomX®. The VDR (Virtual Data Room) service offers highly secure data rooms in Germany, which are intuitive to use and therefore do not require training. The fast server connection and search algorithms reduce waiting times when working with the data rooms.
The top theme of this year’s LEGAL ®EVOLUTION 2017 is efficiency in law firms and legal departments. The congress on 23./24. Every year, October 2017 shows the latest developments in technical solutions, software offerings, communication solutions and services for lawyers. Lawyers, lawyers and legal and compliance lawyers and IT specialists find products to increase efficiency and reduce costs from all areas of their work, from legal tech startups to established ITC companies, technology world market leaders and innovative legal service providers. The automation and digitization of law is also an important topic. The events (tracks) run parallel again, and visitors can choose one of the tracks and switch between them.
- Track A sheds light on the future of law firms and legal departments in terms of new technology. How can new technology be used to make the work in a law firm even more efficient? What new best practices will be important to lawyers and legal departments?
- Track B analyzes how lawyers work in the future. Special emphasis is placed on keywords such as blockchains, algorithms, artificial intelligence, neural networks, machine learning and legal databases.
