Don’t think for a second that South by Southwest doesn’t have anything to do with the legal world. SXSW has been offering continuing legal education and other law-related programming since 1998—and this year proves to be just as informative, with sessions on everything from government policy and augmented reality to startups and blockchain.

We’ve reviewed hundreds of session descriptions to create our list of some of the top legal-related events at the March 9-17 conference. A SXSW badge is required to attend (CLE events are open to all badgeholders; other events require the specified badge(s)).

Follow Texas Bar Journal staff coverage on the Texas Bar Blog and on Twitter at hashtag #sxsbot for recommended panels, updates, and photos. And look for a wrap-up of events the following week and in a future issue of the Texas Bar Journal.
