LexisNexis® returns in 2017 to focus on the driving force of the legal profession – people. Discover how people are faring in an industry that at times seems dominated by tech talk. Is a focus on futurism detracting from the realities of the job?
As technology continues to shake up traditional roles, disrupt business models and propagate the always-on mindset, uncertainty around the ‘people factor’ is at an all-time high. At the same time, technology is opening new opportunities for business growth and access to the legal system that did not exist before, making it a truly exciting time to be a legal professional.
Some questions that will be discussed:
How can lawyers build their skills and adapt to evolving client demands, while still retaining the ‘personal touch?'
How are businesses changing their focus to ensure their ‘sense of purpose’ and community commitment is heard to retain and attract employees?
Glass half full – how the future is bright with improved opportunities for clients and access to justice due to a meshing of passionate people with technology.
Technology – Could it be the Herculean strength or Achilles heel of lawyers?
