How many events can claim to take place on Feb. 29? Techshow 2020 can!
Are you looking for a quick way to get up to speed on the latest legal technology? ABA hosts an annual Techshow in Chicago. This conference provides one of the best opportunities for students to engage with emerging legal technologies hands-on. Techshow 2020 runs from February 28-March 2 at Hyatt Regency Chicago. The conference will feature dozens of one-hour sessions. These sessions cover all kinds of legal technologies – from practical tips for using Microsoft Office, to digital security, to favorite websites and mobile apps.
Register for the Techshow 2020
Students can register to attend Techshow 2020 for only $100 (a great bargain). If you don’t have time to attend the sessions, the free vendor showcase is open on Thursday and Friday. You can stop by anytime for as long as you like. The vendor showcase is a great way to learn about new legal technologies and services in an exhibit hall featuring more than 130 companies. You can see live demos of legal tech systems and equipment, not to mention pick up free pens and a few other useful gadgets. The Techshow is also a good opportunity to learn more about alternative jobs available in the legal tech sector.
