ILTACON22 hit its stride with education on full day 4, the penultimate day of the conference. From the opening keynote by Judge Tanya Kennedy of the New York Appellate to multiple sessions during the day, the strength of the conference really showed all day long. And so did Craig Ball who seemed to be everywhere!
From sessions on Legal Ops, AI, ransomware and Microsoft eDiscovery to a discussion of the ILTA lit support survey results to company updates from KL Discovery and Microsoft, it was a strong day for learning. My colleague Craig Bayer of Optiable was attending for only the second time. He came specifically to attend every session and workshop on Microsoft Teams that he could. And said he was extremely satisfied with the quality of information he received.
The day closed with a wonderful party on the Atrium terrace hosted by CS Disco with a traditional Maryland crab boil, a cigar roller and a steel drum band. I boycotted the iManage party later in the evening because they would not give a ticket to Mike Quartararo, the President of ACEDS. Clumsy move iManage, it’s not all about sales prospects!
But even that sour note couldn’t cancel out a great day of learning, both in the classroom and with colleagues. Heading out now for the last day and sorry that it came so soon.
