The Business Case for New Law: opportunities and challenges

Tuesday 21st February, 2017 9:00 am – Tuesday 21st February, 2017 10:30 am
The Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace PERTH

The legal profession has changed irreversibly and indisputably. Terri Mottershead explains how we transition from traditional law to new law and examines questions many practitioners have including:

  • What is it that lawyers do in the new normal?
  • Will legalbots replace us?
  • Are we service or product providers and who are our clients?
  • Do we have the human resources (leaders and employees) to deliver what is expected of us?

This seminar makes the business case for new law, by identifying and analysing the new legal services/products marketplace, the new and emerging law firm business models to accommodate it, and the very different legal workforce, workplaces and workspaces that are critical to successfully making the change.
