Last week brought ILTA>ON, the first virtual annual conference of the International Legal Technology Association. In prior years, the live ILTACON has traditionally been one of the largest, if not the largest, legal technology conferences in the world. So how was the virtual version?

In a nutshell, I thought ILTA succeeded in creating through its virtual conference the sense of community and enthusiasm that defines its physical conferences. To my mind, it was the most successful virtual conference I’ve yet attended.

I explain in my Above the Law column: At ILTA>ON, Reconnecting Community Through A Virtual Conference.
