Tuesday CGI 2023 Sessions and Events: Legal Technology Trends

The CLOC Global Institute conference (CGI) started yesterday with a “soft” opening! Here are the Tuesday CGI 2023 sessions and events to check out!

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 a couple of weeks ago).



With that in mind, here’s a list of a few Tuesday CGI 2023 sessions and events of note you may want to check out, along with the location (all times PT):

9:00 AM – 10:15 AM 

Opening General Session: Change Your Story, Change Your Life (Tower Ballroom)

This poetic keynote seeks to break down internal barriers, build trust, drive collaboration, and ultimately inspire personal and collective transformation from the inside out.  Come explore the topics of growth, courage, possibility and empowerment in the modern world. Instead of allowing life to just happen – to you and around you –  come put yourself in the drivers seat of your journey.  This session just may open your heart and mind, shift your perspective, and allow you to connect with yourself and others in a uniquely powerful and entertaining way.

Addressing the 6 Core Causes of Burnout for Your Legal Team (DaVinci 3 & 4)

Burnout has become one of the most talked about workplace topics in the legal profession and beyond, and its impact is far-reaching. The 24/7 pace of legal work, unpredictability and uncertainty, geopolitical unrest, and a recession have put lawyers and legal professionals on a path to burnout, a cycle that only accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Burnout affects the health and well-being of the entire legal organization, yet most attempts to help focus on quick-fix strategies aimed at individuals. Something is missing. In this program, Paula will focus on helping legal teams identify and better understand the six core causes of burnout with actionable strategies to address each cause.

Speaker: Paula Davis, Founder/CEO, The Stress & Resilience Institute.

Solution Lab: Legal Ops Maturity Assessment Workshop – How to Increase Maturity in the CLOC Core 12 (Bellagio 3 & 4)

Today’s corporate legal departments are facing tremendous headwinds that require legal teams to develop more efficient operations. With the growing importance of Legal Operations, there is a sprint toward increasing operational maturity. In order to “do more with less” cost-effectively, legal teams should focus on ways to optimize efficiency and maturity in CLOC’s Core 12 Functional Areas.

Join Casepoint’s operations team for an interactive workshop. Jessica Robinson, Oliver Silva, and Amit Dungarani will walk you through Casepoint’s proprietary Enterprise Maturity Model and Legal Operations Maturity Assessment. You’ll be able to identify the current state of maturity for your legal department and what you can do next to progress within the maturity model and apply it to all 12 of CLOC’s Functional Areas.

You will walk away with:

  • An understanding of which stage of maturity your legal department is currently in
  • Tangible steps you can take to increase maturity and incrementally move upward in the maturity model
  • Tips on how to increase operational maturity in CLOC’s Core 12 Functional Areas

Speakers: Amit Dungarani, Vice President of Partnerships & Strategic Initiatives, Casepoint; Jessica Robinson, Vice President of Operations, Casepoint; Oliver Silva, Director of Enterprise Accounts, Casepoint.

3:30 PM – 4:20 PM

Super Session: ESG! No Plan-B! What does it all mean for me? (Tower Ballroom)

Having moved far beyond just ‘doing the right thing’ to ‘business imperative’, your organization’s Environmental, Social and Governance impact is increasingly central to determining its current and future success. Whether it is in the court of public opinion, employee engagement or access to capital, ESG is now a major factor. In this session, we bring to life the critical linkage between business prosperity, in the widest sense, and ESG.  We hear from some industry experts and importantly discuss where you and your legal department could and should feature in this critical area.

Speakers: Laurie David-Henric, Global Head of Legal Operations Strategy, Manulife; Stuart Fuller, Global Head of Legal Services, KPMG; John McCalla-Leacy, Global Head of ESG, KPMG.

In addition to the Tuesday CGI 2023 sessions, there’s a variety of networking events, happy hours and receptions. But remember, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! 😉

BTW, don’t forget that IPRO will be sponsoring the Power Up Lounge tomorrow from 8am to 5pm at the Gauguin 2 Room in the Bellagio where you can Power Up at CLOC and “savor a piping hot cup of coffee, refreshing water, and delectable snacks while you power up your devices”.

Not only that, IPRO is hosting several “mini-presentations on a range of soft skills” for you to enjoy while you’re relaxing. I’m conducting two of them: 10 Reasons to Embrace Technology in Legal Operations at 8:30am and 10 eDiscovery Project Management Tips in 15 Minutes at 11:30am. Come join us!
