Knowledge area:
  • Practice management and business skills

The legal services landscape is changing as a number of drivers create organic change from within, and exert pressure to change from outside the profession. Consumers of all kinds are demanding legal services of different levels of intensity depending on the nature of their problem. Legal and non-legal innovators are creating new products and platforms to deliver legal, or 'legalish' services, sometimes in the complete absence of legal practitioner oversite. The legal workforce is shifting in demographics and in ways of working, and lawyers and clients are connecting in new ways and in new forums.

Knowledge area:
  • Practice management and business skills
Online
With the rapid digital transformation of organisations and governments across the globe and the resulting increased digital access to sensitive information and critical services, cyber risks are increasing. It’s a brand new world operating under an outdated legal framework where there is limited precedent combined with new threats and vulnerabilities being identified all the time. The resulting potential exposure for organisations and individuals remains unclear. Likewise, the steps needed to protect oneself are not properly communicated nor widely understood. Most people are still trying to come to terms with this all. So what is really going on and how does anyone navigate this new world? For legal professionals, understanding their own professional risk is complex enough. However they also need to be able to understand the evolving law and risks facing their clients. This panel will demystify the current volatile environment and provide answers to a range of similar questions.

FLIP 2018 Podcast: The Future You - Legal Professionals in the Uber Era

0.75 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Professional skills
Online
This session will explore changes in the legal industry - especially during the past decade - that are reshaping how, when, with whom, and for whom legal professionals work. “Knowing the law” was once enough to secure a lawyer a predictable, comfortable career. That’s no longer the case. Legal delivery now involves legal, business, and technological expertise, and most lawyers will not have traditional “practice” careers as past generations have. That means that they must acquire skills to supplement their legal knowledge - data analytics, project management, personal branding, etc. Those skills - and how to acquire them - will be discussed.

FLIP 2018 Podcast: Unbundling for Access to Justice and Commercial Law

0.75 CPD Unit Podcast
Knowledge area:
  • Generic
Online
There are many drivers that continue to fuel the trend towards the unbundling of legal services, or the deconstruction of a legal service down into a set of constituent tasks. Amongst these are the affordability or cost of services, the limited availability of legal aid and pro bono services for individuals, the increased competition for various aspects of litigious and transactional matters, all of which is facilitated by developments in technology. This session will look at this trend from the perspectives of clients in the legal assistance sector, in-house corporate counsel, and from a litigious and transactional perspective to discuss the implications (risks, opportunities and responses) for clients and legal service providers. As unbundling cuts across a number of legal sectors, there is an opportunity for each sector to learn from the other.
