Legal Business Transformation: New Approaches to Legal Services Delivery
Provocation: Lawyers are not the future of legal services. Solutions to legal problems are increasingly being seen as the remit of the legal function. In this reality, the lawyer is no longer the sole means for delivering legal services. Instead, lawyering is framed as a multidisciplinary endeavour – where the measure of value is the practical outcomes rather than technical legal expertise. In this session, legal leaders share how the business of law is responding to the shifts in what clients value, regulatory stances and the competitive landscape. How does the business of law keep its ‘do good’ compact with society to safeguard rule of law while also serving the ‘do well’ imperative? What kinds of innovative legal business models exist to address this tension and how are incumbents evolving to meet the challenge? Should we be talking about the future of lawyering instead of the future of lawyers?
