LSC’s TIG Conference is the only national event focused exclusively on the use of technology in the legal aid community. The conference provides a unique opportunity to learn about effective uses of technology in legal aid, network with a national community of colleagues and cultivate project ideas that could lead to successful TIG applications.
Who Should Attend: TIG recipients, IT staff, project managers, executive directors, legal services administrators, website coordinators, document assembly coordinators, attorneys, or anyone with an interest in how to use technology in the delivery of legal services.
Where: Crowne Plaza Jacksonville Riverfront Hotel, 1201 Riverplace Boulevard, Jacksonville, FL 32207. The TIG Conference room rate is $83/night single or double.
What's Covered: Session topics will cover a range of issues such as how the use of technology can enhance internal legal services operations, improve client services, address access and triage issues and effectively provide legal information to low-income people. Sessions will also cover management of TIG projects, including reporting and evaluation requirements.
There will also be an opportunity to exchange information in more informal 'Affinity Group' networking sessions that attendees helped determine at registration, and an 'Ignite' style plenary session called 'RAPID FIRE TECH' to provide some fast-paced presentations highlighting technology project successes, new ideas and lessons learned.
Registration: The registration fee is $420, which includes breakfast and lunch each day of the conference. Registration is currently sold out. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request to be added to the waiting list.
