    SEMINAR


    "Over 20 Years of Data, Beyond Privacy"

    Hamish Fraser, Bird & Bird


    This talk will explore what data was and has become and what lawyers should know about it.


    The presentation will consider 4 key themes:

    1.    The data itself, discussing developments in the technical capabilities of data use, transportation and storage.

    2.    Uses of data, highlighting the increasing breadth and complexity of applications that have been made possible in the past 20 years, such as data mining and artificial intelligence.

    3.    Privacy and data protection laws.

    4.    Look to the future of data and the challenges that new data uses will create for lawyers.

    Welcome to the new website and membership management system!


    The Committee undertook to improve services to members and simplify management tasks by moving to a new system, and the first stage of this was accomplished today.


    The first important change is to how users log in to the system: this is now based upon your email address rather than using an account name. To access the system for the first time, please use the "Forgot password" function (top right-hand side of home page), entering your registered email address.


    After changing your password you will be given access to the areas which enable you to manage your profile and membership or subscription.


    Please also see the FAQ for more details.
