Join a Special Interest Group (SIG)

What are SIG Meetings?
Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide an opportunity for members in local firms to participate in useful discussions with peers in job role and work remit. Meetings are free to attend and generally informal. Although Each SIG operates differently, the overriding aim is to meet on a regular basis with colleagues from other firms to discuss issues or topics relevant to your field. Find a SIG that interests you and fill in the according form to be added to the mailing list for meeting notifications.

Why should I join?
Many of you like the idea of having quality time with colleagues who know exactly where you’re coming from: the challenges and pressures you face, the targets and projects you’re tasked with, the environment you have to work in. Although the legal community have access to various conferences and events, options for more informal, niche, job-aligned sessions are few and far between. That’s the gap SIGs are here to fill! We aim to provide a place where you can share experiences, ask questions, kick around ideas, float suggestions and thrash out problems with like-minded peers and to help the committee members and ILTA staff team identify topics from within your sphere that we considered for our formal educational programme (e.g lunch and learns, roundtables, webinars).

Who can attend?
ILTA SIG meetings are hosted and led by individuals working in a law firm or legal department. anyone from your firm can attend the meeting. ILTA emails out meeting invites to individuals on the mailing list for the respective SIG.

Where do they take place?
In person meetings are hosted by member firms and virtual SIGs occur online via Zoom. Please let us know if you’d be willing and able to host a future SIG event.

When do SIGs happen?
Most SIGs aim to meet on a quarterly basis. If you can make the date, great; if not, there’ll always be another time. Once you register your interest in joining one (or more) of our SIGs, we’ll send you the dates so you can add them to your calendar.
