About this event


What do lawyers need to know when working with companies that use immersive technologies?

New use cases for immersive technologies are being discovered every day which means that the law is doing what it can to keep up. Expert panelists will discuss how intellectual property, insurance, and law in general are managing the needs for companies adopting or creating immersive technology hardware or applications. These legal implications are interwoven with other emerging technologies such as blockchain, NFTs, web3 and more buzzing around the metaverse conversation.

Join us July 6th for The Next Evolution program on Law and hear from legal experts about how these issues are being addressed and what they think lawyers in the future will need to know around immersive technology.

What's The Format:

We will be using Virbela's Open Campus to host the program. We suggest that you download, set-up, get familiar with the Virbela program ( and environment prior to the program, as we will be unable to provide support during the event. The event will also streamed on (

The virtual environment resembles a physical space, so you will be able to talk with other attendees during open networking both before and after the presentations. The sound is spatialized, so if at any point it feels too loud, feel free to move your conversation to another part of the room where there are less people.

We begin with informal networking and then start the stage portion promptly at 6:15pm CDT. There will be a handful of presentations before we move on to answer audience questions and then finish with more networking. We keep it simple and informal - this MeetUp is about you, our members, and not the host or presenters. Come and get your questions answered, take your next step into immersive technology.
