Rising Star Scholarship

I am excited to attend ILTACON because events like ILTACON can provide the tools and building blocks necessary for young professionals to grow into outstanding practitioners and serve as both ambassadors and mentors, opening the doors to others. Additionally, I am excited for the opportunity to stay current regarding the trends and tools out there, as well as getting the opportunity to network with so many of my peers from around the globe. — Tanya Pereira, Cassels, Brock & Blackwell LLP

Cheryl Disch Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship

I am humbled by the scholarship offer and excited for the opportunity to attend ILTACON. As a newcomer to the field of legal business and technology, I’m most looking forward to the connections I will make at the conference as well as the vast array of knowledge and resources I’ll encounter while there. Our firm is currently embracing numerous projects requiring a greater reliance on technological solutions. I am confident that attending ILTACON will enhance my ability to aid the firm with these tasks and so much more.

Cheryl Disch Diversity & Inclusion Scholarship

In January 2020, the legal technology community unexpectedly lost a wonderful colleague and dear friend, Cheryl Disch. Cheryl, an outstanding marketing professional at Duane Morris left an enduring legacy through her passion for educating and helping others, within the ILTA community and beyond. A mentor, leader, and friend, she elevated ILTA's brand in the marketing community and constantly advocated for the value of ILTA events, including her favorite, ILTACON, which she co-chaired with distinction in 2016 & 2017. As one of ILTA’s core values, we are committed to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in its membership and at ILTACON. This scholarship is intended to expand the perspectives shared at ILTACON and foster professional development among minority members of the association. This includes groups underrepresented within ILTA including, but not limited to: African-American/Black, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, LGBTQ+, and People with Disabilities.
