data_Law_Justice (1)Ed. note: To help kick off our new “ILTA on ATL” channel, we’ll be bringing you daily updates from ILTACON this week. The event kicked off Sunday and runs through Thursday in Orlando. 

News Of Note – An exciting day of pre-conference activities was conducted Sunday. This included content about overcoming imposter syndrome in the legal tech industry, the initial ILTA Buddy program meetup, various functionally oriented block parties and the opening reception. And a quick reminder, to keep up with all the comings and goings, please download the ILTA app; the most up to date information for the conference is there ( Don’t forget to follow, and use, the conference hashtag, #ILTACON2023, on social media also, to learn more about the event happenings and to amplify your activity. 

Let’s Get Physical – For those who missed the golf outing and don’t have their exercise regimens completely satisfied by walking 20,000 steps a day between the two conference sites, morning yoga and running groups are available (not only today, but throughout the conference). 

On The Docket – Today’s keynote, offered by topic expert Sara Ross, speaks to the conference about reigniting a spirit of aliveness to reshape one’s work and refuel their life. Great messages here, don’t miss it. There are, of course, a bevy of information sessions on everything from API’s, the future of the legal profession, Power BI, enhancing the client experience, legal ops, citizen development and much, much more. A much anticipated session on AI from Casetext kicks off in the early afternoon. The non-stop action continues with the unveiling of the new ILTA Litigation Support Survey at 2 p.m. Finally, there is an ILTA Affinity group reception in the Dolphin on Monday 6-7 p.m., where the ILTA’s Women Who Lead section, She Breaks the Law, and Andrea Markstrom’s IWILL members have a meetup.  

ILTA Spotlight – ILTA Buddy Program. This offers first-time attendees the chance to link up with an ILTACON buddy (an experienced ILTACON attendee who will take you under their wing and give you the insider’s perspective on having a great ILTACON experience). The initial meetup occurred last night. I participate in the program, it’s a great idea. And for those who’ve attended ILTACON many times, if you see someone who might need a hand getting integrated, please reach out to them.  

Entertainment Tonight – The Legal Bytes band is back, playing prior to the keynote. And, if you are interested, mementos from this morning’s Keynote Performance by Legal Bytes are available at Grand Harbor Registration! This evening, please gather at 5 p.m. in the Yacht / Beach Grand Harbor Ballroom for Klik training and a reception, followed by the Ultimate Tailgate Party. A good time is a virtual certainty!
