Call for Proposals

We invite you to submit proposals to speak at the ITechLaw 2023 International Asia-Pacific Conference in Singapore. 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. 

Submit Today! Deadline: Monday, 22 August 2022

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 both for those in person and at their home computers. This conference is set to be an in-person event. All speakers should feel comfortable speaking in person.  

TYPES OF PROPOSALS

  • 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. 

  • Workshop

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

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, 22 August 2022 at 11:59 pm PT for consideration. The Planning Committee will review all submissions and notify each presenter of the status by December 2022. If you have any questions, please contact us at memberservices@itechlaw.org.
