The PLLIP Summit, now in its tenth year, continues to address critical issues relevant to the future of information professionals. Summit X: The Path to 2030 will offer attendees the chance to reflect on past predictions and lessons learned, as well as opportunities to actively participate in designing a path forward.
Change has consistently accelerated in the seven years since our 2012 Summit – The Path to 2020. We are pleased to announce that Jordan Furlong, keynote speaker at the 2012 Summit and one of our most popular past presenters, is returning to share his views on the legal landscape and opportunities for information professionals. For the Summit X keynote, Jordan will discuss how the growing power and sophistication of legal intelligence will dovetail with and help to accelerate the transformation of law firms’ client services and business models. Future law firms, including those owned and managed by legal professionals other than lawyers, will evolve to meet demand for actionable business advice, data-driven legal predictions, competitive analytics, and industry-specific risk avoidance. The keynote will describe how law librarians, knowledge engineers, and data analysts will play key roles as law firms become manufacturers, refineries, and exporters of actionable legal intelligence.
We thank Wolters Kluwer for their generous support of this year’s keynote address.
Jordan’s keynote will set the stage for a lively set of panel discussions that will engage our customers and stakeholders. In the afternoon, we are excited to present an interactive session that will challenge attendees to think creatively about delivering solutions to those customers.
Join us and design your Path to 2030 on Saturday, July 13th in Washington DC! For more information about Summit X, please visit our website.
