Entering its ninth year, the Legal Futures Innovation Conference has consistently reflected how the amount and variety of innovation grows every year. We showcase the most interesting and thought-provoking developments, hear from the pioneers disrupting the market, and provide delegates with ideas and motivation to take back to their own businesses.
This year we will look at what the impact has been of the increasingly diverse ways in which law firms are now owned – hearing from some of the most high-profile – and learn how apps, consolidators and other innovators are changing the ways in which legal services are delivered.
The conference comes just three days after the SRA’s new Standards & Regulations come into force, ushering in a new era where unregulated businesses can employ practising solicitors to deliver advice to the public. We will feature some of the unregulated business already active in the market – two thanks to SRA waivers because they didn’t want to wait for the rules to change – and what they mean for consumers and regulated firms.
Finally we will examine how (indeed if) much-hyped technology such as artificial intelligence is relevant to smaller law firms, and how to overcome the barriers to innovation that you may be facing.
For many, innovation is no longer something that others do – it is an integral part of how they are improving as businesses in serving their clients. The Legal Futures Innovation Conference will help law firm leaders and others in the market understand what is going on and how they can make sure they are not left behind.
