Workshop 403

The Future of Law 

Sponsored by  borden ladner gervais logo the canadian bar association

Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on the current opportunities and trends that in-house counsel can leverage to shape and strengthen their careers during this transformative time and in preparation for the future of law. Our world is changing fast, fiercely and frantically. As such, we need to tap into our resources and competencies in order to propel ourselves towards this new and exciting era with confidence. In this session, we will be highlighting the skills of the future.

Disruption being the new normal, resilience is unquestionably at the forefront for required future skills in the legal world and beyond. Along with this, the once one-dimensional legal problems are now being transformed into immense, multi-faceted business problems, demanding the use of smart collaboration to increase overall efficiency and impact.

To help the modern lawyer of the future adapt to the 21st century, we will provide insights on embracing the Delta Lawyer Competence Model in order to better understand the business of law, and mentoring best practices for the lawyers of 2030, as technological disruption, service delivery and reliance on legal operations are redefining the future of law.
