 The ABA TECHSHOW 2014 Conference and EXPO is where lawyers, legal professionals and technology all come together. Attendees will learn about the most useful and practical technologies available March 27-29 at the Hilton Chicago.

Rick Klau, partner at Google Ventures, is the conference’s keynote speaker on Friday, March 28.  

Program highlights include:

“E-Discovery Caselaw Update” — How are courts addressing predictive coding, the preservation of social media and the general expanse of e-discovery? Come hear experts in the field run down the latest and “hot off the press” opinions in the world of e-discovery.

“The Changing Face of Large Case Financing and Billing” — From the newly minted position of “pricing director” to the debates on third-party funding of litigation, changes are underway in how legal services are negotiated and priced. Look at the tools and changes taking place and how they impact and improve options for firms moving into the future.
