AIR INDIA WAS NOT ONLY one of the most complex trials in Canadian history, but among the most technologically advanced. It's not surprising then that both the trial and the technology gained star billing in a mock trial (top right) based on actual events and evidence, all at the Pacific Legal Technology Conference on October 14. Lawyers at the conference relived history and looked into the future of trial presentation techniques. It was just one of more than 20 choice presentations on technology relevant to legal practice today, led by more than 30 presenters for more than 230 conference participants.
For lawyers who missed the conference but would like the papers, these are available for purchase. See “Articles/Papers/Precedents” in the Practice Support section of the Law Society website at www.lawsociety.bc.ca. The Pacific Legal Technology Conference was presented by the Law Society, Trial Lawyers Association of BC, Canadian Bar Association and ABA Law Practice Management Section.
