Investment in emerging technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) has been at the forefront of everyone’s minds over the last year. The impact will be transformative in the long run, but these changes won’t happen overnight. The next stage of the journey is successfully embedding these technologies into routines and everyday practices.
This process of embedding new technology takes place in the context of the wider legal market innovation that has been taking place over the last decade. Problem-led solutions design, agile working and innovation hubs are now common to the legal sector. Combining new ways of working with the lawtech revolution presents major opportunities for both law firms and prospective lawyers. Navigating this new environment will also require careful thought.
On the evening of Thursday 20 September, Legal Cheek is partnering with Norton Rose Fulbright to hold a free event at its London office for students interested to hear more about this new phase of legal market development. Speakers from across the firm will share their thoughts on the legal design movement, legal innovation, the new skillsets and roles becoming available and how firms are re-imagining service delivery. Expect to hear how cross-functional teams of legal and technical experts worked together to deliver innovative solutions to client problems.
David Carter, Commercial Director, Norton Rose Fulbright
Jeremy Coleman, Innovation Manager at Norton Rose Fulbright's Newcastle Hub
Ben Stirling, Business Solutions Programme Manager, Norton Rose Fulbright
Sara Collins, Legal Designer, Norton Rose Fulbright
The speakers will also discuss how technologies like AI and machine learning are enhancing practice and how skills from other disciplines, such as data analytics, project management and document and process automation, are being combined to provide a better client experience. After the session there will be informal drinks and networking.
With its tech focus, trailblazing innovation hubs in Newcastle and Houston, and new NRF Transform innovation programme, Norton Rose Fulbright is well positioned to lead the conversation in this area. For students seeking to boost their commercial awareness at the start of the new graduate recruitment year, the insights will be invaluable.
