5 April 2013


Legal workflow specialist OchreSoft has announced details of a short seminar season for private client professionals.

The first will be held on 20th June at Old Trafford, Manchester, the second will take place in Crawley on 9th July. Chaired by Viv Williams, CEO of 360 Legal, the events offer a rare opportunity for private client lawyers to meet with their peers at a time of unprecedented change in the probate marketplace.

The programme will combine speakers, roundtable discussion, networking and an exclusive first look at OchreSoft’s latest probate, wills and LPA workflow solution, Intelliworks Private Client. Registration is at 9.30am and the event will conclude with a light lunch.

Richard Bretherton, CEO of OchreSoft, is keen for private client professionals to come together and look to the future: “There’s no doubt that there are challenges ahead for the probate market. Like so many other areas of law, traditional providers are facing competition from new entrants such as Saga, and related pressures such as commoditised fixed fee and self-service.

“The day is designed to explore these challenges and how firms can respond to them through revised strategies, new ways of working and technical innovation.”

Algorithms and the law

Jeremy Barnett

Our aim is to start a discussion in the legal profession on the legal impact of algorithms on firms, software developers, insurers, and lawyers. In a longer paper, we consider whether algorithms should have a legal personality, an issue which will likely provoke an intense debate between those who believe in regulation and those who believe that ‘code is law’. In law, companies have the rights and obligations of a person. Algorithms are rapidly emerging as artificial persons: a legal entity that is not a human being but for certain purposes is legally considered to be a natural person. Intelligent algorithms will increasingly require formal training, testing, verification, certification, regulation, insurance, and status in law.
