Southwestern and West Legalworks to Co-host International IT Law Summit 2007

The two-day conference to be held on the law school's campus

What internet issues are keeping Chief Privacy Officers up at night? Can you successfully negotiate the local laws and hidden complexities in an international outsourcing project? How do you revitalize a failing large-scale IT project? These questions, along with some of the most important legal trends, the newest business initiatives and cutting-edge technology advances will be explored at the International IT Law Summit 2007, presented by Southwestern Law School and West Legalworks™. The two-day conference will take place June 7-8, 2007 at the law school's campus at 3050 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles.

Information technology has been the driving force behind U.S. economic growth, at $2 trillion a year to the economy over the last decade, according to a report by the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation. Yet, with the rush to acquire and develop the latest and greatest technology, companies have not fully contemplated the complex and continuously-evolving legal and regulatory issues looming over their deals. From data privacy protection to IP licensing to IT insurance to patent prosecution, attorneys must be equipped with an up to the minute understanding of the law and the latest strategies and practical approaches for successfully managing, enforcing and protecting information nationally and globally.

Southwestern Law School and West Legalworks have created this one-of-a-kind event to help professionals optimized IT deals and be better prepared to identify and solve the pressing legal concerns of deal-making in today's whirlwind technology arena.
