In most law firms, change tends to be evolutionary and not revolutionary. However, unprecedented changes now underway in the legal services marketplace and workforce mean that beneath the surface significant game changing shifts are afoot. In this session we will explore these trends, their implications and the possible responses of law firms to them. What are the forces that are going to shape the way law is practised among the law firms in future?
In the next 10 years the world will see some really significant changes in globalisation, demographics and technology, which, separately and collectively, will have a major impact on the legal sector. We have two separate panels. One focusses particularly on the impact of globalisation and the other on competitive pressures.
