Reflecting on the Law Firm of the Future
Date – April 19
Time – 10 am PDT
Presenter – Connor Mahony, Account Executive
It seems that when the global COVID-19 pandemic hit, law firms needed to ensure that they enabled work to continue by any means to ensure service deliverability and maintain a revenue stream. This simply meant that firms extended their internal network to facilitate home working. This is a remote working model, wherein the firm is still hosting applications on its own servers, resources are displaced, and lawyers and staff are still logging on, likely using a VPN link that provides access to the office hub . So the firm’s IT network is extended, but essentially unaltered.
Join Tikit for this virtual session where we will discuss the role technology plays in shaping the law firm of the future.

Knowing that diversity and inclusion are important, and knowing where to begin when creating a diversity and inclusion program or strategy, are two different things. Many workplaces know that D&I is both the right thing and the smart thing to do, but simply don’t know where to start. If your organization is at or near the beginning of your diversity and inclusion journey, this is the program for you.
In this session Michael Bach, Founder and CEO of the Canadian Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI) and author of the book Birds of All Feathers: Doing Diversity and Inclusion Right, will share his thoughts on the importance of building a diverse and inclusive workplace, and how to get started on creating one.
Everyone who signs up for this session will receive a copy of Michael’s book “Birds of All Feathers” delivered to you at your firm.
Register and pay by May 10th to have a copy of your book prior to the event!
