We are excited to announce the agenda for the 2017 PLLIP Summit on July 15! The Summit committee has worked hard to design programming for this day-long continuing education opportunity with a theme of Navigating the Critical Nexus of Knowledge and Legal Technology. We’ll start the morning with a Keynote by Professor Gabriel Teninbaum of Suffolk Law School that will explore the legal innovation landscape and its impact on law librarians followed by a Q&A session to further delve into the topic. After hearing about how firms are incorporating technology, Professor Dan Katz of Chicago-Kent School of Law will discuss how librarians can become more data-driven through a hands-on team activity of drafting a legal data strategy.
In the afternoon we will change gears slightly to show how technology is already being leveraged by our peers in a panel discussion about real life examples. Margaret Bartlett of Locke Lord, Mark Gediman of Best Best & Krieger, Gina Lynch of Paul Weiss, and Nancy Rine of Fried Frank will explore how working together with the IT department can promote both a library agenda and further the goals of the organization. After being inspired to bring these changes back to your firm, we will join V. Mary Abraham of Columbia University for an interactive session on how to survive and even thrive in the midst of all these changes.
To see the full agenda and read more about it, please visit the 2017 PLLIP Summit: Navigating the Critical Nexus of Knowledge and Legal Technology website and register for the summit on the 2017 AALL Annual Meeting page (The Summit is listed as a Preconference Workshop.)
