Those attending the event will:

With a rich legal heritage boasting 200 law firms and 10,000 legal professionals, alongside the bustling digital ecosystem of 7,000 businesses and 80,000 workers, Manchester has become the hotspot of lawtech innovation.
“We can see that Artificial intelligence, blockchain, and cloud computing are all starting to converge, to shape a future where legal processes are automated, transactions are secure, and justice is accessible to everyone.”
