Lawyers, Technology and Innovation

Practice Management and Business Skills

CPD Points 1


This course will help you cut through the hype and focus your thinking around the use of technology in the law – enabling you to apply only what really works for you and your clients.

We will explore how technology and innovation are re-shaping the legal profession, and how lawyers can engage with this in a way that results in tangible, positive benefits to their practice and clients. We will discuss a range of topics, including:

  • what innovation is (and is not) and how it can help lawyers and law firms;
  • the economic, demographic and cultural trends re-shaping the legal profession;
  • practical examples of the types of technologies being used by lawyers, non-lawyers and the courts to help improve legal service delivery;
  • lawyers’ professional obligations around their knowledge and use of technology in legal practice; and
  • potential barriers to change and how to address these.

The course will demonstrate how innovation and technology, when properly employed, can help law firms to build a competitive advantage, retain talent, and ensure they will continue to flourish in decades to come.
