Welcome Letter from Chief Judge Aiken
As Chief Judge for the District of Oregon, and in partnership with the Oregon Chapter of the Federal Bar Association and the Ninth Circuit Lawyer Representatives, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 2013 District of Oregon Conference: "Innovations in the Law: Science & Technology." This conference, the first of its kind in Oregon, will be held at the renowned Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) on September 20 in Portland, Oregon.
It is well known that change is the only constant in life. As members of the legal field, we need to apply this maxim and start approaching how we do our work differently, if only because the world is moving so fast. Accordingly, the aim of this event is to facilitate novel and thought-provoking discussions regarding how the integration of law and technology will enable us to look forward and identify new solutions, shaped out of creativity and collaboration. It is our privilege to host industry leaders and legal professionals, from all over the country, who will deliver the most current and advanced information on law, science, and technology. Please come join us for what will surely be a groundbreaking and sensational event!
A sincere thank you to the team who helped put this conference together – it was truly a collaborative effort and a pleasure to work with each of you.
