  • Individual Proposal SubmissionThis proposal submission is intended for individual submissions; however, you may also propose a panel.
  • Panel Proposal Submissions Panel Proposals that include more than one speaker, are subject to limitations and availability. As noted above, each law firm is allowed only one speaker per Conference. 
  • Proposal Selection: ITechLaw receives nearly 100 proposals for consideration for each conference, which makes panel selection a difficult and competitive process. Proposals from ITechLaw members who have advanced topic knowledge are given preference.

The Program Planning Committee will review all submissions and notify each presenter of the status by December 2021. If you have any questions or difficulties, please contact us at memberservices@itechlaw.org.

The Program Planning Committee carefully considers all proposals to select the best for this year’s conference. If you are selected as a presenter, you will be asked to submit materials in advance of the conference and you will receive a complimentary conference registration. The presenter should assume that all attendees have a working knowledge of the topic and should focus the presentation on the implications of the topic and what it means for lawyers in practice. Each session will be assigned a moderator and the moderator will communicate with the presenters in advance of the conference to create a cohesive panel presentation. 

The moderator will help set the vision for the panel (based on the topic themes identified below) and work with the speakers to ensure their content is forward-looking and cohesive. Speakers will share their views on the topic and work with the moderators and other speakers to ensure the overall session is a success. Sessions will still be 90-minutes in length, but there will be up to 3 concurrent sessions. 

Thank you for your interest in speaking at an ITechLaw Conference!
