It is with great joy that we announce a return to the ILTA Educational Conference, 22 – 25 August, 2022. ILTA was the first supporter of the LEDES Oversight Committee and finally, as the pandemic moves into endemic phase, we will be back this year in August.
Conference participants can find the LOC in booth #534, with GLE founder and LOC President, Jane Bennitt, and Nadia Strobbia, LOC Secretary and Thomson Reuters powerhouse, on-site.
In addition, we will have a hospitality room on Tuesday, 23 August where we will be hosting:
– 11:30 – 12:300 – the LEDES Oversight Committee mid-year members’ meeting
– 1:30 – 2:30 – Open forum discussion on Ebilling Issues and Best Practices. This session is a continuation of a discussion started by our London Regional Group, and the discussion will lead to a Best Practices White Paper on LEDES.org for Law Departments and Insurance organizations looking to implement legal ebilling.
Both events will also be held via webinar for participation by LOC global members not at the conference.
In addition to the above, GLE Founder Jane A. Bennitt will participate in session #1714: Leveraging Technology to Manage Outside Counsel Guidelines, to be held on Wednesday, 24 August 2022 from 2:30 – 3:30. Co-participants include Scott Springer from HBR Consulting and Mark Agin from Shearman & Sterling.
At the ILTA Conference I saw a product worthy of mention. Called Prevalent, it is a risk management solution which provides information on the security of systems that may be used by any organization. They offer a couple of different models: one, where an organization can be a regular subscriber and receive information on the security or breeches of systems used or under consideration or, two, where an organization undergoing a system selection can obtain information on the few systems under consideration.
As a legal technology consultant, I see value in an offering like this. Particularly when undertaking a systems selection, an organization is able to receive unbiased information on the security of systems under consideration. Sure, you can ask questions on the security of a platform in an RFP, but all too often RFP respondents answer the question they want to answer, not necessarily the question asked. As we move into an age were security is a greater concern than ever before, an offering like Prevalent is well timed for success.
Jane Bennitt will participate as a panelist in another ILTACon session on Monday, 29 August (law department day) at 1:00. The session is entitled “Matter Management: The Keystone to the Pyramids” and will focus on the various matter management solutions available in the marketplace today.
Global Legal Ebilling founder Jane A. Bennitt will be at the ILTA Educational Conference at the end of August and will chair two session on Thursday September 1st: the LEDES Oversight Committee Members Meeting, which will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m., and Why UTBMS Codes Aren’t a Waste of Time: A Panel Discussion, which will be held from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. We look forward to seeing you at ILTACon!
