LegalTech New York can be intimidating to even the most confident legal professionals. Here are a dozen tips to survive your first marathon, at the New York Hilton Midtown, Feb. 2-4.

1. Plan, plan and plan some more. Be sure to plan your time in advance, because once you’re there, you’ll quickly get caught up in the hubbub. At the same time, don’t overschedule yourself. Leave open time to roam the exhibit hall, at least half a day. Most importantly, leave time for the old friends you’ll run into and new acquaintances you’ll make. These impromptu conversations can be the most worthwhile time you’ll spend at LTNY. —Robert Ambrogi, lawyer/consultant.

Plan each day. When you stick to a planned schedule, it can help avoid being waylaid by the many distractions and give you time to get back from networking or the far end of the exhibit hall. It inevitably means missing some things, but you can always follow up afterwards. Try to never miss a session with data or survey results! —David Whelan, manager, legal information, The Law Society of Upper Canada.
