What Did We Learn from the 2018 CLOC Conference?


Held at the beautiful Bellagio in Las Vegas, NV, the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium’s annual Institute is a massive gathering of legal professionals from across the world. Specifically, the event focuses on optimizing the delivery of legal services to corporations and businesses. Over the years the CLOC has become a large, inclusive, and open community welcoming to newcomers and veterans alike. The event featured over 75 educational sessions run by top leaders in the industry. So what did we learn at the CLOC this year?

Women in leadership roles.

Cyber security and our industry.

One of the biggest topics in the legal industry today is cyber security. This particular breakout talked about information security in relation to vendor management systems, threat assessments, and security questionnaires as well as how to work with third party security management.

Why Blockchain may be important.

While Blockchain is technology that gets thrown around in terms of cryptocurrency, few people think about it any other capacity. This panel took a closer look at Blockchain beyond the buzz so legal professionals could better understand the long term implications of this technology.
