SA to host Africa’s first Legal IT conference

Legal IT Africa 2012 will equip pioneering minds from both legal and commercial technology industries on 27- 28 November in Sandton, Johannesburg.

Emerging IT and business leaders are invited to partake in a strategic conference about the merging of business and technology. In a society where the successful use and comprehension of technology has a great influence on the quality performance of a business, it is essential to be fully informed.

The initiative challenges members of the addressed sectors. “Be the catalyst(s) for the evolution of your legacy systems with new capabilities for adaptability to meet new business needs and incorporate new technologies seamlessly,” the official website, www.legalit-africa.com says.

This first premier event will serve as a platform, enabling law firms and businesses to achieve excellence in areas like process efficiencies, staff management and technology cost reduction. Practical strategies for continuous technological investment, innovative and expansive implementations and networking will all be part of more than 20 hours of presentations.

Contributors and participants from five other African countries, namely Ghana, Nigeria, Angola, Mozambique and Tanzania will also be present. These include heads of legal firms, IT Directors, Chief Information Officers, Conveyance Directors, Chief Financial Officers and Directors of Business Transformations.

Key master classes will enlighten attendees about Cloud computing adoption in the legal industry, comparative analysis of in-house and outsourced IT – key considerations, optimisation of data management and modernisation of the legal industry in Africa, just to mention a few. Furthermore, opportunities for one-on-one meetings, interactive panel discussions and exhibitions by companies like Thomson Reuters Elite and Tech4Law will also be profited from.

Conference package costs range from at R12,000 (US$1,386) to R22,000 (US$2,500). Participants can register online at www.legalit-africa.com. Early-bird discount applies for payment at registration.
