BANGALORE: The 11th edition of the ITechLaw Asia-Pacific Conference started on Wednesday in the city.
The event, ITechLaw, organised by the global forum for technology lawyers, is one of the largest annual lawyers’ conferences in India with 300 lawyers and 50 speakers from India and abroad participating, said forum president Sajai Singh.
This time the focus will be on industry involvement. “We used to have only lawyers addressing the sessions. However, this year, we will have speakers from the industry as well to discuss the legal aspects around technology trends,” he said.
Technology majors like Microsoft, IBM, Adobe, Infosys, Wipro and TCS will participate. There will be a discussion on the challenges faced by corporate India in the digital age, the end of outsourcing, cloud computing, data security and cyber crime. Authors Yudhi Raman and Milan Vohra were present at the inauguration. There was also a discussion of Raman’s book The Tantalus Redemption.
An art exhibition, held on the sidelines, showcased works by artists Gregory Lent, Rupesh Patric, Jayashree Malimath and Prasannakumar. The proceeds of the sales will be contributed to Pall Can Care, an organisation which works with patients in need of palliative cancer care.
A boot camp for young lawyers will be held on January 30 and 31.
