Ladies and Gentlemen

I am very pleased to be able to invite you to the International Conference organized by the Legal Tech Committee at the Gdańsk Bar Association of Attorneys-at-Law devoted to legal and business aspects related to artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, as well as the challenges faced business and lawyers in the face of their development and emerging threats to the security of transactions.

The conference is held to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the self-government of attorneys-at-law. Its subject matter, however, looks to the future, because it refers to the most frequently discussed issues related to the changing way of practicing the profession and providing legal services with modern technology, emerging new opportunities, threats and challenges facing us and our clients. The pace of these changes in recent years is unprecedented. Only systematic improvement of our qualifications will allow us to keep up with them. And this was the goal of the organizers of the Conference.

That is why I cordially encourage you to participate in the Conference.
