According to a recent survey conducted by The Lawyer in association with Wolters Kluwer, all legal departments across the U.K. expect to use legal technology in some form within the next five years. However, just 40% have a digital strategy to support their initiatives.

Join us for a discussion on the role of legal technology and how it is shaping the role of the legal department today, and in the future. This session will cover:

  • The importance of having a digital strategy in place for the legal function
  • The role of structuring and mapping processes in driving digital transformation
  • How to leverage technology to demonstrate value and boost interdepartmental collaboration
  • Challenges when introducing legal technology and how to gain stakeholder buy-in
