Legal Week to Launch LegalWeek Connect in Autumn 2017

A Landmark Legal Gathering in London, UK

LONDON, UK – 18 May 2017 – Legal Week, the trusted news, intelligence and events brand that offers unparalleled insight into the UK and international commercial legal markets, is launching LegalWeek Connect, a landmark event in Autumn 2017.

The event will be held at the Institute of Engineering and Technology (Savoy Place) on 29-30 November 2017, and will focus on the three tenets that are driving innovation, disruption and change in the legal profession: technology, strategy and people.

LegalWeek Connect promises to inspire change across the different components of a law firm and connect the people who are responsible for transforming their businesses, from managing and senior partners through to project managers and functional department heads. Speakers will include leading figures from within the legal profession, top general counsel, as well as high profile figures from the wider business community.

“The UK legal profession has been served well by niche practice-focused conferences and larger trade shows in recent years,” said Anthony Parker, Group Director, ALM International. “Our customers tell us they have a need to increase collaboration between internal teams and also with their clients. We are confident LegalWeek Connect will act as a unique catalyst for this audience.”

Leading the project is Rhiannon Van Ross, Director of Strategic Projects at ALM International. “We are currently working with the largest and most prestigious advisory board ever compiled by Legal Week in order to ensure thought provoking content is at the heart of LegalWeek Connect,” said Van Ross. “We are offering attendees the opportunity to create their own bespoke programme as they navigate from world class keynotes to one of the three tracks offered while at Connect: LegalTech, LegalEngage and LegalTalent.”

Legal Week’s prestigious British Legal Awards will conclude Connect on the evening of 30th November, which acts as a fitting crescendo to an exciting week for the UK legal profession.
