LEGAL REVOLUTION 2020 is cancelled


 

THE VIRTUAL EXHIBITION AND CONGRESS FOR LAW AND COMPLIANCE LEGAL LIVE WILL TAKE PLACE EARLIER

After three years of strong growth, all indications were that LEGAL REVOLUTION, Europe's leading exhibition and congress for law and compliance, would be a great success in 2020 again.

Since beginning of the COVID 19 Pandemic the organizer LEGAL (R)EVOLUTION GmbH monitored and analyzed the developments. The loosening of the Corona measures, the positive feedback of visitors and exhibitors in combination with the sophisticated health protection concept made the idea of a safe and successful event appear realistic, also in 2020. However, the rising infection rates caused a turnaround in September. Intensive exchanges with exhibitors and visitors, led to the decision to cancel the physical event, which should have taken place on 30 Nov. and 1 Dec. in Frankfurt Main.

"We would have done everything to make this face-to-face exchange possible for our visitors and exhibitors - especially now. Unfortunately, the current developments leave us with no other option but to cancel the event.“, explains Aranka Holes, Head of Expo, and Sophia Agne, Marketing Director at LEGAL REVOLUTION GmbH.

The virtual exhibition and congress LEGAL LIVE, initially planned for mid-2021, will take place earlier. The organizer will announce the exact date on 10 November on www.LEGAL-LIVE.net.

“We are working at peak performance on LEGAL LIVE. We will create an innovative online-event, which will offer unique experiences and high quality leads for visitors and exhibitors.“, states Dr. Jochen Brandhoff, founder of LEGAL REVOLUTION. “Matchmaking and other, for the Internet perfectly fitting ways of bringing exhibitors and visitors together, for mutual benefit will be the success factors of LEGAL LIVE“, adds Angelo Aratari, responsible manager of LEGAL LIVE.

Visitors who have already purchased tickets for LEGAL REVOLUTION 2020 will receive a full refund or can transfer the booked services to LEGAL REVOLUTION 2021.

We wish you all the best and stay safe!

First, I would like to introduce the Lawtech Market in Brazil by talking about some impressive numbers of the judiciary in Brazil. We have more than 1.200 law colleges and more than 1 million trained lawyers. For this reason, it´s necessary for a lawyer to stand out in the crowd. There are double the amount of lawyers then there are accountants or doctors, approximately 536 to 453 thousand respectively. We have more than 100 million juridical processes. It doesn´t make sense to spend 1.3% of GDP with litigation.

A newcomer between professional consulting and mediation

In contrast to purely legal professional advice, legal coaching is the accompaniment and support of the client by an experienced lawyer or attorney according to the quality standards developed by the professional associations for coaching, with a focus on the interests and needs of the client. It increases the lawyer's competence in communication skills and conflict management and thus relies on soft skills. However, unlike the additional training in mediation, the decisive advantages are that the lawyer does not lose his partiality and thus not his mandate and that it can be applied both as a complete coaching process and selectively in the mandate.

Contending with the Hurdles of GDPR
Commentary
GDPR
Reading Time 10 Min.

Before the European General Data Protection Regulation went into effect, seemingly everyone was talking about the pending requirements and potential penalties. Requirements such as the “right to be forgotten,” data pseudonymization, privacy by design, oversight of data processors, appointment of Data Protection Officers, readiness assessments, data breach disclosure requirements and concerns about fines up to 4% of annual global turnover garnered much attention. Now, most lawyers, technology experts and corporate leaders fall into one of four categories: sufficiently compliant, behind schedule, unconcerned or engrossed in responses to Data Subjects. While some believe they are in compliance with all of the substantial requirements to protect personal data, others are scrambling because their initiatives are behind schedule. Moreover, a few business leaders have decided to chance using a minimally compliant strategy by not significantly investing in initiatives such as data pseudonymization or simply hiring a third party representative to act as their Data Protection Officer; and taking a “wait and see” approach to how the GDPR is leveraged by Data Subjects and enforced by authorities. Meanwhile, an increasing group of companies are contending with a growing number of access, deletion and remediation requests from Data Subjects

Flexibility, Tools and Diversity

Arbitration and digital transformation seem to be a perfect match. Especially during the current challenges the legal world is facing, arbitration has proven to be a reliable method to continue ongoing and initiate new disputes, to stay connected virtually and to keep learning through a variety of webinars. The rising use of virtual hearing centers and the switch from physical to virtual hearings is only one of the few adaptations we have seen recently. But, why is it that arbitration goes hand in hand with digital transformation and what are some of the down- and upsides when the use of technology expands significantly?


The following gives a brief response to these questions: Firstly, the flexibility and adaptability of arbitration is a key element of international arbitration and the parties' autonomy is inherent to the conduction of the arbitration (see section 1). However, when using new digital tools or new technologies, it is not the fanciest tool that wins. Rather, the one that provides a benefit to the practitioner and addresses the respective needs in each individual case (see section 2). Besides making the conduction of an arbitral proceeding (hopefully) more effective, digital transformation also supports diversity in international arbitration and plays a vital role in advocating for equality (see section 3).
