Futures Forum:

Data Driven Insights—A Deeper Dive

The first Futures Forum session of 2023 will be held February 16 at 11:00 a.m. Central Time. This session follows our data session from November 2022. (If you missed that session, click here for the recording.) We are bringing back two of the speakers, Mark Medice and Katherine Lowry, to provide case studies around data driven insights in the legal profession. These will be practical examples of how data related projects have been developed and implemented, and the benefits and insights derived from those projects. Fellow Matt Peters will moderate the session. Click here to register and here for speaker bios.
