One conference I regretted missing last year was ctrl ALT del, the inaugural conference of the Association of Legal Technologists. Judging by what I read about it both during the conference and afterwards, those who were there considered it a success — not an easy feat for a first-time conference.

Now, ALT has announced the dates and agenda for its 2019 conference. It will be held Feb. 9-12 at the Scottsdale Plaza Resort in Scottsdale, Ariz. The agenda includes programs covering four blocks of topics:

  • New legal service delivery.
  • Artificial intelligence.
  • Security and privacy.
  • Adoption and change management.

Each block includes a mix of presentations and collaborative “legal design think” sessions.

The registration price for the conference includes the hotel room, meals, and 2019 ALT membership. Until Nov. 30, the early-bird registration cost is $1,695. After that date, it goes up to $1,895.

Read more or register at the conference website. And if you need to justify your attendance to your higher-ups, ALT has even prepared a letter for you to submit.

ALT was formed in 2017, after some ILTA veterans, unhappy with the organization’s decision to terminate three members of its executive staff and concerned about its overall direction, decided to break off and form their own group.
