The CLOC Global Institute Conference (CGI) starts Monday! Here’s a CLOC 2023 preview of educational sessions and other activities, including those from eDiscovery Today Educational partners!
Corporate Legal Operations Consortium’s conference – CLOC 2023 – will be conducted May 15th through May 18th. It will be held at the Bellagio in Las Vegas and is a fully in-person event this year. Here’s the detailed schedule for the conference (on which I generated a word cloud of topics last week).
For the CLOC 2023 preview, let’s start with some notable stats about this year’s CLOC conference (per yesterday’s press briefing):
- There are 2,500 registered attendees for the event – 42% are in-house legal ops professionals and 57% are legal service providers and law firms, representing 1,000+ companies.
- There are 77 total sessions (including general sessions, supersessions, breakouts, roundtable lunches, solution labs and workshops) with 163 speakers (58% of which are first time CGI speakers).
- There are also 116 companies representing the full ecosystem within the Exhibit Hall.
With so many eDiscovery Today educational partners, I thought I would continue my trend from the Legalweek preview and highlight their activities for the CLOC 2023 preview. Here are the partner* happenings that I know about:
