Rina Van Orden recently attended the University of Richmond’s Journal of Law & Technology Spring Symposium. The event focused on “Emerging Technology in Law” and included topics such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, and bridging the access gap.
One panel covered “The Future of Law Post-Pandemic” presented by Sharon Nelson and John Simek. Nelson and Simek covered the many ways that the past year has changed the ways we work. Legal considerations for modifying operations represent their own opportunities for creative solutions. Web-based solutions like electronic signature and document services have helped maintain integral professional processes. Similarly, telecommunicating services provide safe ways to consult with coworkers and clients.
The event concluded with an engaging panel focused on Women in Technology Law. A highlight of the event, this topic was particularly relevant to our firm. The panel included attorneys, educators, and other professionals who were able to give perspective on what it’s like to be a woman in this field and ways to increase future technology law opportunities.
We want to thank the Journal of Law & Technology for a wonderful program. As the legal industry grows and adapts, we continue to stay informed of the ways to better serve you.
