Event description

Description

This seminar brings together legal practitioners and academics at the forefront of technological change. Topics and speakers include:


  • Gerard Groarke BL – Technology and the Bar: Uncomfortable Bedfellows?

  • Fred Logue, FP Logue Solicitors – Technology and transparency in litigation, a form of legal aid.

  • AnneMarie Whelan BL, RegSol Ltd. – Regulatory Compliance and Technology.

  • Denise Daly, A&L Goodbody Solicitors - How A&L Goodbody is embracing technological change for the benefit of its clients; and the opportunities this presents for the lawyers of the future.

  • Mark Potkewitz, Co-Director, Legal Innovation Centre, Ulster University - Non-traditional roles for lawyers and legally-minded people.


Attendees will also be invited to participate in an afternoon workshop on how legal educators should respond to these changes (1.30pm - 3pm).


This seminar is intended to update students and practitioners about how the legal practice is being changed by technology, and the kind of skillset lawyers will need in the future to deal with this. We also hope to engage in broader discussions about how the nature of legal practice might change in the future.


The short 15 minute presentations and Q&A will form a jumping off point for a workshop in the afternoon on the topic of "Responses to Technological Disruption" examining how educators, students and professionals can collaborate to respond to this changing environment
