About this Event

Where: Stone & Chalk, 710 Collins street, Docklands

When: Thursday, 26th September, 7.30am to 9am

Coffee and croissants will be provided by St.Ali

The legal profession seems to be at a crossroads. Author Richard Suskind claims that the legal world will change more in the next 20 years than it has in the past two centuries. There has been a great upsurge in the marriage between legal services and technology, business structures are changing and evolving and with that, the skills of the future lawyer will have to change and adapt.

This panel discussion will be an exploration of what legal services will look like in the coming decade. How will everyday people interact with legal services? Will all laws be codified and AI predict all outcomes? How will lawyers as individuals have to change and adapt?

Hope you can join us
