This year's "Tech of Tech Law" Conference is back! We are working on the final list of topics and speakers, and we are, as always, aiming for a programme of practical, tech-focused sessions, to help you better understand what your clients are doing.

Topics under consideration include:

  • Accessibility
  • Federated services
  • "Green" tech
  • Security research/testing

We will also be running the very successful "10-minute tech talks". These give new/nascent speakers a chance to talk about a technical topic for 10 minutes, accompanied by support/mentoring from friendly experienced tech lawyers if desired to help make the most of the experience. More information about this to follow.

We welcome your input too - if there's a particular technology that you wish you understood better, and you think it would be of interest to other SCL members, please do email us at

Administration Notes

Conference fees:
The cost of attending the SCL Tech of Tech Law Conference, will be £300 + VAT (£360) for SCL members and £600 + VAT (£720) for non-members.

How to book: 
If you wish to attend this event please book online or email and request an invoice.  

VAT invoices will be issued to all delegates.

Fees can be paid by Mastercard, Visa or bank transfer. All invoices for attendance at this meeting must be paid within 30 days of the invoice date or prior to the date of this event whichever is earlier.

A note on fees for remote bookings:
Remote bookings are the same price as in-person bookings so that SCL can cover the costs of the tech support that’s needed to offer a fully hybrid event. The costs related to providing a fully hybrid event are often higher than having delegates at the venue in-person but, as an educational charity, we want to make sure that our events are as accessible as possible. We ensure that the high level of insight, training, and expertise offered at our events is available to both in-person and remote attendees. Additionally, the recording and any event materials are available for all attendees to access and re-watch after the event has taken place.

Any organisation that purchases 2 places at the member rate and at the same time is entitled to a 3rd place free of charge for an SCL member. 4th and any subsequent member bookings made after that will be half-price. This offer is open to SCL members only and is not available online - please email to make a block booking and take advantage of this offer.

SCL "rising star" bursaries:
If your organisation is already paying for a full-price delegate, you are invited to nominate a tech law "rising star" to attend this event at a reduced rate. "Rising stars" are required to record their impressions of the Conference - this can take any form and we encourage you to get creative (make a word cloud, sketch a cartoon, record a video, write a poem!) This will then be published on the SCL website and shared on our social media platforms after the Conference. Assisted places at the Conference cost £170 + VAT. Please send details of your nominee to Sarah Forster at

Concessionary rates for academics, students, the unemployed and those experiencing financial hardship are available upon application. Please contact for more information.
