Every legal department recognizes the challenges of commercial contracting, whether it is speed of contract review, finding key terms, amending many contracts for a change in law or other practical challenges like tracking workload balance of legal professionals. Many legal departments have taken first steps at implementing technology to help make the process more efficient, some successful, others less so. Many departments are trying to figure out where to even start.

A one-day event on March 10, 2023 in NY City with practical workshops about automating contract lifecycle management, vendor presentations, networking opportunities to learn from peers who have experience with CLM and the ultimate way to get up to speed on all things CLM.
