The next Virtual LegalTech will be on March 18th from 9-5am EST. It’s a unique way to network online with other attorneys, attend educational sessions and check out the exhibitors. One session that might be of interest to the attorney with a virtual law practice: “Developing a Comprehensive and Legally Sound Social Media Policy.” You can hop in and out of this event throughout the day which makes it really convenient.
