The LawTech industry is growing at an unprecedented pace and LawTech has already entered our everyday lexicon. The cutting edge technology used by LawTech startups is transforming the way legal services are provided. Law firms are seeking ways to adapt, while clients wish to reap all benefits: cost-reduction, quality, speed et alia. At the same time, law schools need to prepare law students for a future where LawTech will be the norm. How can startup founders, law firm partners and legal academics best embrace the incoming tide of changes?
This ELGS webinar is aimed at identifying and deciphering the major trends in the area of LawTech. A combination of expert speakers from academia, legal practice, EU institutions and other fora have been put together in order to contribute to the stimulating discussion about this vibrant area of law and technology. Topics to be covered include LawTech and its relationship with Legal Education, Legal Practice, Startup Ecosystems, FinTech/RegTech and Litigation.
