A game-changer has emerged for businesses, policymakers, and lawyers, and it’s called the “Internet of Things” (IoT). It is one of the most transformative and fast-paced technology developments in recent years. Billions of vehicles, buildings, process control devices, wearables, medical devices, drones, consumer/business products, mobile phones, tablets, and other “smart” objects are wirelessly connecting to, and communicating with, each other... and raising unprecedented legal and liability issues.

Recognized as a top new law practice area, and with global spending projected to hit $1.7 trillion by 2020, IoT will require businesses, policymakers, and lawyers (M&A, IP, competition, litigation, health law, IT/outsourcing, and privacy/cybersecurity) to identify and address the escalating legal risks of doing business in a connected world.

    intellectual property, cloud, and regulatory issues raised by IoT
  • Dynamic new additions: a mock trial, tabletop exercise, corporate counsel roundtable, and Fast Forward mini-updates
    to get up to speed on key emerging issues
  • Complimentary Law Library of Congress Tour (May 9)
