Print This Post

10 June 2011


Legal Futures Associate Byfield Consultancy, in association with public affairs specialists HJCL, is hosting an early evening workshop event entitled ‘The Big Bang: Navigating the new legal order’.

The event will examine how law firms can best face the communications and regulatory challenges accompanying the implementation of the Legal Services Act 2007.

From October 2011 we shall see new entrants into the legal market, important changes in how legal services are procured and greater competition as a result. Law firms will need to decide how to adapt to the changing landscape in order to meet the challenges and opportunities that will soon become apparent.

The Byfield/HJCL event will feature:

  • A presentation on legal services regulatory landscape, forthcoming changes and how it will impact on the traditional legal services;
  • SWOT analysis of the reforms;
  • A brainstorm on utilising the new deregulated landscape;
  • An overview of communication techniques that will be used by new entrants to the market; and
  • Top tips on responding to government consultations.

Following the presentations there will be a Q&A session, followed by networking and refreshments.

The workshop is on Thursday 30 June at 6pm at The Law Society, Chancery Lane, 113 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1PL.

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
