inside ILTA ASIA SUMMIT LegalTech Asia Technology Summit, the inaugural legal technology event in Asia, took place on March 4 and 5 in Hong Kong. It was proclaimed a complete success by attendees, as it was the first time they had educational content designed specifically for legal technology professionals. Attendees participated in a wide range of educational sessions delivered by an expert global faculty and had access to the newest technologies and services driving the legal profession. It was exciting to see ILTA content being delivered in a new context and watching attendees' reactions to it. Many attendees offered to become more involved in ILTA events, and there was great anticipation for repeating and growing the event next year.
