Speak at the 2024 European Conference

We invite you to submit proposals to speak at the ITechLaw 2024 European Conference in Munich, Germany. This conference boasts attendees from more than 40 countries and a forward-looking conversation on the most cutting-edge legal tech topics. Speaking at an ITechLaw conference is an honor, and the conference planning committee carefully considers all proposals to select the best for the conference. Please see the topics below and consider proposing one of these main areas.

ITechLaw will only consider proposals submitted via the online form. Please refrain from submitting your proposal via email or to the Conference Co-Chairs as they will not be considered.

All proposals must be submitted by Monday, 20 May 2024 at 11:59 pm PT for consideration. 

If you are selected as a presenter, you will be asked to submit materials in advance of the conference. All presenters should assume that 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. Topics should have a broad appeal and involve engagement for those in person. This conference is set to be an in-person event. All speakers should feel comfortable speaking in person.

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


Present a Topic

Submit a proposal for a specific topic or subject matter that you would like to present. 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.

Idea for Topic or Theme

Submit a proposal for a topic or theme that you would like to see as a session. This proposal is for an entire session with multiple speakers. You do NOT have to know other speakers or subject matter experts for the proposed topic or theme.


Submit a proposal for an interactive, 40-minute workshop. These are great opportunities to share an idea or get creative juices flowing.

Proposals that will have a higher chance of acceptance should be interesting, surprising or perhaps entail disruptive take home messages! Consider including the following in your proposal:

  • sessions that require interaction with and/or input from the audience,
  • deep-dive sessions,
  • showcases on technological developments (show how it works in practice instead of merely talking about it),
  • case studies on how to deal with new developments (IT, legal or both) in daily practice (in-house lawyers’ best practices), and
  • any innovative or creative format you believe would work at an ITechLaw conference.

Proposal Considerations

Firm and Presenter Limits

To maximize the overall number of views expressed during the conference, the Planning Committee will continue the practice to limit presenters to one per firm for the duration of the conference.

Individual Paper Submission

This proposal submission is intended for individual paper submissions; however, if you propose a panel you may still be considered depending upon the space available in our programming. Panel submissions with multiple presenters must not have duplicate representation from firms – see above, only one speaker per firm will be selected for the entirety of the conference.

Proposal Selection

More than 75 proposals are regularly received for consideration for each conference, so please understand that selecting panels is a difficult and highly selective process. Preference in selection will be given to proposals that are made by ITechLaw members and focus on advanced knowledge of a topic.

All proposals must be submitted by Monday, 20 May 2024 at 11:59 pm PT for consideration. The Conference Chairs and Planning Committee will review all submissions and notify each presenter of the status by August 2024.

Speaker Policy Enforcement

ITechLaw enforces the following speaker policy when considering the proposal submissions.

Speaker Policy

  • A speaker may not speak at two conferences in a row in a particular geographic region. (e.g, no speaking at two European Conferences in a row). Exceptions to this rule may be allowed.
  • Planning Committee members may not act as speakers or moderators. Speakers from their firm are permissible.
  • Only one representative per firm is allowed to speak at the conference.
  • ITechLaw does not pay speaking fees to any speakers. Exceptions may apply.
  • Speakers receive a discounted rate to the member registration rate to attend the full conference. An exception is made for in-house counsels, academic faculty, and government officials who may attend complimentary.

Submission Disclaimer

Please note that not all proposals will be accepted. Decisions on all proposals will be made by August 2024. Please only submit a proposal if you are available to attend the conference. Please save the dates, 30 October – 1 November 2024.

When considering a proposal and curating panels, ITechLaw is conscious of diversifying the panels to represent a global perspective, inclusivity of genders, and limiting one speaker per firm/organization. This should be considered when submitting your proposal.

Sessions are typically between 60 minutes in length with up to 3 concurrent sessions.
