The Professional Law Institute at The Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London is proud and delighted to be hosting a new lecture series on ‘The Future of Legal Practice’.
The way we practise law is changing. Business needs are evolving rapidly. In a globalised and strongly competitive market, clients require lawyers with a deep understanding of the way they operate. They need creative and dedicated lawyers who know how to harness the law, their skillsets and, increasingly, technology to make their business thrive. This is a call for us to rethink the nature of legal services - to be imaginative. What will our clients, now and in the next decades, require from us as (aspiring) legal professionals? How can we best learn to fully understand our clients' needs and help them navigate the law in a way that makes most sense for them? And how do we legal professionals thrive and meet individual and systemic challenges in this ever-changing world?
To explore these and other related questions with us, the Professional Law Institute is inviting students, academics, practitioners, and members of the public with an interest in the subject to attend our lecture series: The Future of Legal Practice.
During the summer of 2020, we will be hosting a series of events virtually.
