4:00pm - Introduction

This edition of the Legal Roadshows will focus on the Future of Legal in a digital age and address the following:

The landscape of information management is changing, driven by security, governance, evolving business models and preferences of today’s modern professionals for how they expect and want to deliver the highest quality client service.

Join us for the Edinburgh / Dublin leg of our European roadshow as we take an in-depth look at the latest technology and innovation from iManage.

Items to be covered include:

By 2018, an average of 139.4 billion business email messages will be sent and received each day. While properly filing an email takes only seconds, those seconds add up to hours of lost productivity per user per week. During this roadshow, attendees will learn best practices for creating a successful email management strategy to save both time and money.

Law firms are increasingly faced with justifying their billable time and/or being asked to complete projects within a fixed-fee arrangement. If a firm's users are not sufficiently skilled in the technology that supports their workflows, it creates inefficiencies and increased billable hours. By encouraging lawyers and staff to become skilled and certified in a set of law firm approved core technology competencies, a firm increases its competitive advantage by reassuring clients that their chosen law firm has the most suitable skillset for dealing with their matters.

We cordially invite you to attend an ARCS User Group meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland at the offices of Brodies, on Friday 13 September, from 10:00 am to 15:30 pm.

We extend many thanks to Brodies for hosting this event.

Join us for an exclusive LexisNexis Enterprise Solutions Client Event; an ‘Executive Briefing’ designed to inform and update those whose remit is to align their organisation’s business objectives and technology strategy, and want to understand how they can maximise their existing LexisNexis technology investments.

BigHand has announced the details of their annual briefings that take place at venues across the UK, starting with the London event on 19th June. BigHand will be demonstrating how the latest BigHand version 4.2.2, new speech recognition components, and the latest smartphone releases and integrations can deliver further efficiency gains at law firms.

The Law Society of Scotland and the Faculty of Advocates are planning their fifth annual World Intellectual Property Day event in Edinburgh on Friday 27 April 2012, from 12 noon to 2pm.

World IP Day is on 26 April each year, and The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in Geneva set up this global event in 2000. World IP Day aims to make us aware of the impact of IP on daily life, teach us about how IP protection promotes creativity and innovation, celebrate the contribution of creativity/innovation to society and encourage respect for IP rights.

This talk will provide a quick refresher on the Data Protection Act 1998 (and related legislation) and will cover three to four recent developments in relation to data protection, including: (i) new requirements relating to use of Cookies; (ii) review of the Information Commissioner’s use of its new powers to issue monetary penalties and related contracting trends relating to data security; and (iii) proposed changes to the data protection regime to deal with social media.
