TRU Tips

The topical prominence of data privacy at Legalweek 2020 indicates the viability and perhaps vastness of a career in data privacy.

TOP 3 Takeaways From Legalweek 2020
  • Privacy is here! There were lots of fresh faces and brands all over the exhibitor hall with plenty of software designed for data privacy and governance in the mix. Sessions fully dedicated to privacy careers were on the agenda for the first time.
  • Aside from exhibitor floor traffic, for most vendors the event is all about connecting with existing clients. The hope of net new relationships and revenue seemed dimmed and the focus almost holistically was on getting closer to those you already service.
  • Gender disparity was a recurring theme this year. ALM started the conference by sharing stats about gender splits on law school grads versus law firm equity partners. The gap is still huge.
