Attend an enlightening Master Session with the innovative Futures Law Faculty, in association with renowned legal futurist, Chrissie Lightfoot. If you thought you had time to prepare for the digital revolution, you would be wrong: it’s here, and you are living in it. Question is- are you ready for this rapidly changing new word?
The legal industry is no exception to this transformation, and it is changing faster than ever imagined. There are close to a thousand legal start-ups registered worldwide, promising to be more competent and faster than conventional firms. There are reports of robots and other technologies that have been implemented by firms that have proven to be more efficient than some lawyers when it comes to executing certain legal tasks.
So, what exactly does this mean for the legal industry and, more importantly, how can attorneys, advocates and other legal professionals take advantage of these developments? The Futures Law Faculty, in association with renowned international legal futurist and lawyer Chrissie Lightfoot, will shed light on the latest advancements and how firms and legal professionals can keep a competitive edge by embracing the future.
