|2010 CITY BAR SUMMER SERIES: HOT PRACTICE AREAS - Technology |
Tuesday, August 3, 2010 6:30 pm
Technology law sits at the intersection of intellectual property, contract law, consumer protection and privacy. It is a multi-disciplinary field that continually challenges its practitioners who freqently need to address the application of long-established principles to rapidly changing technologies. This program will present three veteran practitioners each representing a different facet of technology law practice - large law firm, technology and information company and consumer protection agency. They will discuss the various directions one can take a technology law career, where there are opportunities and the extent to which a technical background is necessary (less than you'd think!) or desirable.
