Full Description

For Ark Group’s 13th annual Knowledge Management in the Legal Profession conference, we have decided to shake things up a bit… And the result is that this year’s conference will feature more use cases delivered by a mix of professionals who all have one thing in common: They have succeeded at Knowledge Management.

This year’s conference will focus on practical KM… no more navel-gazing, academic topics; we want you to walk away with more actionable ideas than ever before!

We also wanted to hear from new voices this year. KM is a diverse discipline, and our speakers reflect that diversity. In fact, for the first time ever, we sent out a wide request for ideas, allowing the conference be shaped by your real-life experiences and successes. Many ideas and concepts were proposed and we feel that we are delivering the best of the best, from within the legal KM community.

If you are interested in AI (and, let’s be honest - if you aren’t, someone at your firm is), you’ll want to learn about the nuts-and-bolts work that’s a necessary prerequisite to succeeding in this area. Matter profiling and data hygiene are hard work, but it’s work you can start now. There is “ditch-digging” behind AI; you can start at the beginning while also learning how firms are solving problems today using these technologies.

Whether you have an existing KM program or you want to build one, you’ll hear concrete examples from successful KM operations: how to focus KM on problem solving, how to embed KM in practice groups, and how to use firm culture to your advantage.

Attendees will also hear about successes in pivotal KM technologies such as intranets, enterprise search, document assembly and more. We’ll look at data analysis that answers the important question: What’s market at my firm?

And integrated into all KM business objectives must be the client service perspective; we will get a first-hand account from a corporate legal KM department about their KM needs and the program they’ve developed.

We penned this introduction because we want to convey the energy that is so unique to this year’s combination of speakers and topics. And we both look forward to seeing you and once again co-chairing this year’s conference…
