You’re Invited – Holland & Knight Presents Navigating Tech in the Law

Technology overlaps with many industries, and the legal world is no exception. Emerging technologies are rapidly transforming both the substance and practice of law in almost every area, including business law, financial services, intellectual property and litigation. As technology continues to evolve, fluency in key technological trends is now more important than ever, as it can inform decisions about what practice areas and specialties are positioned to evolve with these trends and help with mapping out a place within the landscape.

Holland & Knight invites Class of 2023 law students to join an informational series on the intersection of law and technology. Our presentations will discuss legal careers in tech, current tech trends in major practice areas and how some Holland & Knight attorneys have charted various paths in the tech space.
