Event Details

The conference – TALL eXchange 2K18 – will be an opportunity for the law library community to learn from leading experts and each other at the conveniently located Vantage Venues (formerly the St. Andrew's Club) in downtown Toronto. This was the site of the inaugural 2016 conference. 

We are pleased to announce that the morning Keynote Speaker will be Eric Wright, incoming CEO of Lexis Nexis Canada. Mr. Wright will kick off the conference by giving us a “bird’s eye” view of the latest developments of legal technology, and how those innovations will impact how librarians and researchers do their job now, and in the future.

We are also pleased to announce Dr. Khalid Al-Kofahi as our afternoon Keynote speaker.  Dr. Al-Kofahi will be discussing artificial intelligence and its application to law and legal research. He is Vice President of Research and Development at Thomson Reuters. During his more than 20 years with the organization, Khalid has led the development of many advanced technologies. In addition to his role as head of corporate R&D at Thomson Reuters, Dr. Al-Kofahi also leads Thomson Reuters’s Center for Cognitive Computing, based in Toronto.

In addition to our Keynote speakers, we will offer sessions on topics such as innovation and legal research, building a personal brand with LinkedIn, innovations in research instruction and the latest developments in legal Canadian copyright issues in a digital era. 

We will close out the day with some energizing lightning talks from TALL members on interesting and unique initiatives they’ve been working on.

Full conference program can be found on our WordPress site.
