Following the outstanding success of the inaugural FT/RSG Innovative Lawyers Summit in 2016, we are delighted to announce the 2017 Summit. Once more this independent meeting will bring together our global community of corporate counsel and private practice lawyers together with chief executives, academics and non-legal innovators to discuss how the profession can best meet the challenges it faces, both in terms of innovation and in its evolving role in business, government and society.
This year’s agenda will focus on the drivers of innovation and include topics such as collaboration, culture, diversity in its widest sense and leadership. In addition, the Summit will focus on the role of lawyers in upholding the rule of law and increasing access to justice, automation and how it is changing lawyers’ practices and the changing structures of law firms and corporate law departments.
Ample time will be provided for both structured and un-structured networking. We will arrange three salons where private practice and in-house lawyers will discuss their challenges and solutions to the topic issues.
