TechLawFest conference

TechLawFest 2022 Starts on 20 July

Singapore’s TechLawFest returns this month for its fifth annual event, this year in a hybrid setting following two years of being held online.

Global Legal Post is a media sponsor for the three-day legal and tech conference, which is run by the Singapore Academy of Law (SAL) and starts on 20 July. The first day will take place at the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel for a virtual reality metaverse exhibition, followed by a two-day online conference to discuss the implications of the metaverse and web 3.0 trends such as blockchain and 5G technology on the legal industry.

Guest speakers include Singapore’s culture minister Edwin Tong, who will deliver the keynote speech. Other speakers include virtual world Somnium Space’s CEO Arthur Sychov and Madaline Zannes, one of the first lawyers to set up a law office in the metaverse. They will be joined by Alethea AI’s CEO Arif Khan. The conference will bring together more than 2,000 legal, tech, and government leaders.

Rama Tiwari, chief executive of SAL, said: “The next iteration of the internet coupled with next generation interfaces using augmented and virtual reality will bring benefits and challenges. All new technologies give rise to novel legal issues. TechLawFest offers a timely forum to experience, explore, discuss and exchange ideas on how to either mitigate risks or resolve these novel legal issues.” read more
