These days the practice of "technology law" is a very broad area. It encompasses outsourcing, cloud, digital, tech procurement, data privacy, cybersecurity, tech disputes, social media, IP, consumer law. Also, now that every company is a tech company" we have seen the rise of healthtech, fintech, adtech, proptech (the list goes on) where knowledge of the sector and industry law and regulation is important. 

Whether you work in private practice or in-house, identifying the specialist areas of practice that you find most interesting and rewarding can help you give focus to your career, provide opportunities and raise your profile. 

In the session we will be joined by a range of speakers who will explain how they found their niche and provide some top tips on how to find your niche and build your knowledge, networks and profile in your chosen area(s) of practice.
