Legal professionals all have to deal with contracts, be it template creation, negotiation, word-processing and versioning, approval, signing, registration, drafting non-standard clauses, conservation or litigation. Contracts are truly an asset.

Thanks to a ​learn-by-doing approach the most advanced legal technologies in this area will be presented by the same players that contributed to their development. Participants will be provided with a general overview of the legal tech sector and insights on the technology, with a specific focus on due diligence, e-signing and identity management technologies.
