LawNet Annual Conference - 11th November 2016

Artificial intelligence, cognitive computing and big data sound like they have come straight out of a science fiction movie. Yet some pioneering law firms are already using these tools to shape the way their firms operate, creating new kinds of legal services and business processes.

This year’s LawNet annual conference will explore the opportunities these technological innovations might bring to the profession and help firms prepare for the challenges associated with managing transformative change.
