Find out what's happening in the world of legal tech and what it means for you as a future legal practitioner
Legal tech is here to stay and there is no finishing line. As Professor Richard Susskind OBE said at the International Law Book Facility’s 15th anniversary event, “By 2030, all of our lives will have been changed by technologies that haven’t been invented yet”.
Technology applied to the law presents a huge opportunity for access to justice: not simply to facilitate the work of lawyers who have ever more complex matters to work on, but importantly, to open up access to justice for non-lawyers, and give them the opportunity to understand their rights and enforce them. Professor Susskind posed this exact question at the ILBF’s event: “Do you want to compete with these emerging systems or do you want to build them”?
Join us on 19th January to hear from legal tech experts on what is here now and what to expect in the future. We’ll be joined by Charles Brecque, Founder and CEO of Legislate, Chris O’Connor, Director of Solutions at LexisNexis UK and Frankie Garcia, Product Manager at Mind Foundry. The panel discussion will be chaired by Ellen Lake, Senior Associate at Clifford Chance, member of Clifford Chance's Tech Group, and a member of the ILBF’s Operating Committee.
If you are planning to enter the ILBF’s law undergraduate essay competition, the insights you will hear from our expert speakers will challenge and inspire.
