The Future of the Legal Profession: Paradigm Shifts

The legal profession is currently experiencing significant changes. What are the changes occurring and the forces driving them? Is ‘business as usual’ still an option? What future landscapes do we envision? Join us for a robust conversation as an expert panel explores these questions and addresses the following topics:

  • The current and future business models of law firms
  • Technology disruptions and their impact on business costs and employment
  • Holding half the legal sky: developing models to retain and advance women lawyers

Hosted by Professor Lesley Hitchens, Dean of the UTS Law Faculty, the panel features:

6:00pm for 6:30pm start. Reception to immediately follow at 8:00pm to network and experience the Frank Gehry-designed building.

This event carries 1.5 CLE/CPD points.

This event marks the launch of the UTS: Law The Future of the Legal Profession series which, over the next few years through a variety of formats, will explore the challenges facing the legal profession. With its strong emphasis on practice-oriented learning and educating work-ready graduates, UTS: Law is well placed to offer the series.
