UniCourt at the Law 2.0 Conference in Dubai and Las Vegas

The future of law is bright and will be defined by how legal professionals harness the diversity of the broader legal technology ecosystem to improve their law practices and bring forward innovation in the law.

We’re thrilled to share that UniCourt’s CTO and Co-Founder, Prashanth Shenoy, will be speaking at the Law 2.0 Conference held in Dubai at the InterContinental Dubai Festival City from December 16th to 18th, and that UniCourt’s CEO and Co-Founder, Josh Blandi, will be receiving recognition for his leadership in the legal industry at the Law 2.0 Conference held in Las Vegas at Hotel Mandalay Bay from December 19th to 21st. 

As the Law 2.0 Conference highlights, “Just like any other field, the fields of law and finance are also going through a massive transformation and becoming more of a client-driven industry,” and that “it is imperative that industry stakeholders and thought leaders from corporate law and finance come together and gear up for the competitive market.”

The Future of Law

On December 17th, the second day of the Law 2.0 Conference in Dubai, Prashanth will be speaking on the first panel of the morning, entitled “Future Of Lawyers — The Impact Of Legal Tech, Big Data, And Virtual Courts.”

This panel will focus on the transformational changes that have taken place over the last decade with the introduction of legal technology solutions into the everyday workflow processes of legal professionals. More specifically, this panel discussion will center on how legal tech in the litigation space has made lawyers more efficient at handling court cases, reduced costs involved in litigation, and enhanced the development of winning litigation strategies.

In addition to Prashanth speaking on a panel for the Law 2.0 Conference in Dubai, we are also thrilled that Josh will be recognized on December 19th at the Law 2.0 Conference in Las Vegas with an Outstanding Leadership Award. 

Under Josh’s strategic vision to provide Legal Data as a Service (LDaaS), he has assembled a diverse, global team behind UniCourt, based both in the U.S. and India, including computer engineers, data scientists, physicists, and legal professionals all working together to unlock the potential of legal data.

Through Josh’s leadership, UniCourt has developed a robust, growing ecosystem for accessing legal data via our APIs and online app that removes the barriers of data collection, costs, and normalization, so that innovators can build the next generation of legal services and products to move the legal profession forward.
