The latest in Legal Cheek’s 2021 series of Secrets to Success virtual events — held in association with The University of Law (ULaw).
What does the future hold for legal tech and how has the technological revolution been accelerated by the pandemic? How should students be engaging with this trend as they seek to develop their commercial awareness?
These are some of the key questions that will be discussed at Legal Cheek’s latest Secrets to Success virtual student event, held in association with ULaw, taking place on Wednesday 7 July, from 4pm to 6pm.
The virtual event will begin with a panel discussion chaired by a Legal Cheek journalist, who will put questions to a panel of lawyers from Allen & Overy, Norton Rose Fulbright and Squire Patton Boggs, as well as an expert in legal education from ULaw.
During this discussion, the speakers will give an insight into how they are working to deliver legal services in a more efficient way with the help of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence. They will also consider the way in which the pandemic may have quickened the pace at which legal technologies are being adopted throughout the legal industry.
The speakers will also be encouraged to discuss their career journeys and advise students hoping to follow a similar path.
• Nishant Prasad, associate at Nivaura and future trainee at Allen & Overy
• Alex Malt, hub innovation manager at Norton Rose Fulbright
• Laura Nelson, professional support lawyer in the labour & employment team at Squire Patton Boggs
• Simon George, associate professor and director of Legal Research Academy ULTRA
After the panel discussion there will be virtual networking with the speakers, graduate recruitment teams and trainees from their firms, as well as members of the ULaw employability and courses teams.
