TechLaw Webinar

Bird & Bird's Tech & Comms Group are delighted to invite you to a new digital edition of our flagship Annual TechLaw event.

While the COVID-19 pandemic means we are unable to safely accommodate the 300 + attendees who would normally join us in London, it does provide the opportunity to move the debate and discussion online, and extend an invite to a wider international audience.

The webinar will focus on two current key topics that we hope will offer an invaluable insight into the legal developments as well as the opportunities and challenges faced by anyone trying to harness the power of data.

Please see the programme below. RSVP using the button below. 

We look forward to connecting with you on 26 November.
