INfluential women in legal tech

Since 2020, ILTA honors five outstanding women leaders in the global legal technology community each March during International Women's History Month with the Influential Women in Legal Tech list. Honorees are selected based on their history of mentorship and level of impact on Legal Technology. 

Open to all women in the legal community across the globe, being selected as an ILTA Influential Woman in Legal Tech illustrates that the individual is a dedicated professional in fostering change and female leadership (i.e. developing mentorship or leadership programs, making noteworthy contributions to the legal technology space, and/or championing innovative initiatives).
