Legal Futures has been charting the post-Legal Services Act world for more than five years now and has consistently been the first to highlight what lawyers need to know about the future direction of the market.

This year’s annual innovation conference is no different. As more and more talk centres around artificial intelligence and what it might mean for the law, delegates will hear about the system that has provoked most interest: IBM Watson. We will also hear from the founder of ROSS, the world���s first AI attorney, and discuss what AI means for lawyers on a practical level.

And then there is ABS and other ways that legal businesses are finding to stand out in the market. The ranks of ABSs continues to grow, and rarely does a week go by without us reporting on another interesting business looking to make its mark. At this conference we will judge how far we have gone in terms of innovation by asking those doing it, and also look at the role of ABS, technology and other innovations in helping access to legal services and broadening the demand for legal advice.

The Legal Futures Innovation Conference: From ABS to AI is a must-attend for all those who want to understand the way the legal market is moving now and will do in the future. It is always a terrific opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and make connections that could change the way you do business.
