ABA Techshow 2021: What you need to know

ABA Techshow 2021: What you need to know

Spring is almost here – which means the ABA Techshow is almost here!  Normally it’s held in Chicago around the end of February/beginning of March.  Ok, that’s not spring in Chicago no matter how you look at it.  

This year, the Techshow will be virtual.  No, you won’t get to replenish your pen supply while interviewing vendors.  But you will get to attend dozens of sessions on legal tech while enjoying something other than 12” of snow in 16F weather (unless, like me, you actually live in Chicago).

Techshow Schedule and Sessions

The show will be run on a modified schedule – about 6 hours of programming a day from Monday, March 8 through Friday, March 12 (instead of the normal Thursday-Saturday schedule).  Sessions include (among many more):

  • Ethics of Remote Practice
  • Secrets of Microsoft 365
  • Data Security and Privacy for Lawyers
  • Lawyer’s Guide to Zoom
  • The Amazing Depth of Cyber Investigations
  • How our Identities Shape our Outcomes
  • Cannabis Law 
  • Remote Team Management
  • Marketing Technology Tool Trends

And, of course, don’t miss 60 in 60 (learn 60 ideas, tips, and apps in 60 minutes).

If you’re a licensed, active attorney, you can earn CLE credit while you watch.  

Techshow Registration

Does a virtual conference mean lower prices?  It does:

  • ABA Members: $295
  • Non-members: $350
  • Law student members: $25

This is less than half the normal pricing.
