Joshua co-organized the Lawyer 2.0 Conference at Queen’s Law, a multidisciplinary conference examining changes in the legal profession. He assisted in liaising with entrepreneurs, lawyers, academics, and technologists, who discussed a broad range of subjects including blockchain, machine learning, and natural language processing. Joshua worked with the Queen’s Law administration to organize the back-end details for the event, developed marketing materials, and emceed the panel discussions.
