Over the years we’ve heard a lot of myths surrounding legal tech including; misconceptions around cloud security, the reliability of voice recognition software, buying and deploying new tech being a mammoth (and expensive) task… not to mention that AI is taking over jobs.

Perhaps then it is unsurprising that the legal industry and law firms, in particular, are still viewed as being too conservative with regards to reinvention and change. This webinar will address the myths of legal technology and the strategies for law firms to overcome these challenges to achieve a cultural change and embrace digitalisation.

Watch this session to hear the panel discuss:

  • The key drivers and barriers to the adoption of legal technology.
  • The misconceptions around the risks of adopting new technology.
  • How lawyers can make their working lives more efficient.
