The world is changing. Businesses are more demanding, fee models are evolving, and new technologies are emerging. The pressure is on for law firms and legal businesses to operate more efficiently and effectively.
The Legal Innovation & Tech Fest creates a space where people can learn and explore the technology, ideas and innovations that are literally transforming the way we live and work.
Roundtable discussions were held with legal and IT professionals from over 75 organisations, facilitated by local leaders in the legal space. The attendees were asked what challenges they are facing within the legal space and what topics they would like to see covered at this year’s conference. Key discussion points and insights gleaned from these groups resulted in the following themes emerging:
- Embracing technology
- Innovation: Drivers, barriers, & opportunities
- Future of law & rethinking business models
- Legal design thinking: Enhancing the user experience
- Deriving value from data
- Change management: People & processes
- Developing skills for new legal paradigms
- Harnessing knowledge management
- Demystifying AI & ML
These topics have led to the evolution of this event’s unique program. Warren Hero from Webber Wentzel, Jorden Lam from HESTA (AUS), Jackie Nagtegaal from LAW FOR ALL and Kevin Oliver from Allen & Overy LLP (UK) are just a few of the thought-leaders that will be speaking at this year’s Legal Innovation & Tech Fest.
