Annual Conference Flash Talks

Following the incredible success of the Flash Talk sessions at the 2018 Conference we're including them in this year's programme and we’re inviting you to be part of it. 

Here’s how it works: each flash talk will be a maximum of 10 minutes long and can be on any tech law topic you like. We’re looking for hot topics, inventive presentations and tangible learning for delegates to take away from the session (think "all you need to know about x"). Entry is open to anyone who hasn’t been a speaker at the SCL Annual Conference before - students to senior partners, in-house or private practice - but you should ideally have some presenting experience and be comfortable speaking in front of a large audience. 

"This will be a lively, format-busting way to shake up the day, and it’s a great opportunity to make a bit of a name for yourself too!" Mark O'Conor, Chair of SCL

Please send short biographical details and an outline of the talk you would like to give to

The closing date for entries for the Flash Talks session is Wednesday 31 July 2019.  

Many thanks to our sponsor:
