The Role of Lawyers in an Automated World


As technology evolves, so too does the fear that this will replace humans in the workspace – and this fear has carried over into the traditionally tech-averse legal profession. But peaceful coexistence can exist and the alignment of human and tech can in fact benefit all involved, both lawyers and clients alike.

Join us for a conversation with Tony Randle, Partner and Head of Client Strategy at Shoosmiths, and Julia Salasky, Legl founder and CEO, around:

  • Why lawyers should embrace technology, not fear it
  • The three laws of legal robotics
  • How human EQ + tech IQ = a better client experience
  • The future of “lawyering”
