Best-selling author and legal technology expert will headline Interact 2015 and focus on improving in-house legal teams’ ability to navigate change in the legal industry
AUSTIN, Texas, April 28, 2015– Mitratech, the market-leading provider of enterprise legal management (ELM) solutions for legal departments of all sizes, announced that Richard Susskind, the best-selling author of The End of Lawyers? and Tomorrow’s Lawyers, will deliver the keynote speech at Interact 2015 to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana from October 4-7, 2015.
Susskind has worked in the legal technology industry for over 30 years, including authoring numerous books, advising major firms and national governments, and serving as President of the Society for Computers and Law. He will offer his unique perspective on how legal institutions and lawyers are poised to change more radically over the next two decades than they have over the last two centuries.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak to Mitratech’s community of clients,” said Susskind. “Leading legal departments that embrace radical change can create great advantage for their organizations.”
Interact 2015, Mitratech’s annual three-day, cross-product user conference, brings together hundreds of leading legal and compliance department practitioners, industry consultants, partners, and Mitratech product experts across 40 different sessions to network and share best practices. This year’s theme, “Navigating the Delta,” focuses on equipping legal departments with the training, tools, and resources necessary to successfully and efficiently navigate change in the legal industry – change that is coming in every direction, from new models for legal services to emerging cybersecurity and data privacy threats to innovative technologies and tools.
“We are excited to have Richard Susskind as our keynote for Interact 2015,” noted Mitratech CEO Jason Parkman. “His vast expertise and incredible reputation in the legal industry is a perfect fit for our clients as they seek to drive even more value for their organization.”
