Legal technology - the holy grail of innovation?

Legal technology - the holy grail of innovation?

In today’s rapidly-changing legal landscape, forewarned truly is forearmed – especially when it comes to legal technology. With so many options and with so much as yet unknown, approaching the issue of tech can feel overwhelming, especially when you’re also tasked with leading an in-house legal team, one that needs to prove its value and efficiencies to the wider business. There are so many questions and concerns. Are you already running out of time? Should you find a well-reviewed new system and implement it as soon as possible to avoid being left behind? Does your team need special training? What tools are actually worth the investment?

We've recently conducted an in-depth report:  Legal Technology: Looking Past the Hype - which surveyed over 130 in-house counsel, including 20 qualitative interviews to provide you with the answers you need – and in the time frame you need it. Namely, fast.

We cut through the noise and get to the essence of the issue in our exec video summary of the key learnings. In just 90 seconds.

So, first things first – is legal technology the holy grail of innovation?

In short, no. In this 90 second video, Maya Hodroj, Market Development Director for In-house at LexisNexis explains that innovation in in-house legal teams should not begin with legal technology.
