2020 Futures Conference Overview

Changing the Legal Ecosystem: Together...We Can Do This!

At the College of Law Practice Management, we have, and we set high expectations of ourselves and for the industry. Our challenge is to keep the Conference content thought provoking and content that cannot be found at other legal industry conferences. The diversity of thought, natural curiosity and creativity of the Fellows thrives on experiences that are unique and innovative. 

While we have experienced changes in the legal ecosystem in the last five years, we are still in the "hype" stage of the real work that lies ahead for the legal industry to remake itself. No one knows this better than the people in this organization. But who is leading this change? Can the people of this organization be a catalyst for creating win/win opportunities for lawyers and those in need of legal services, be they individuals who struggle to access legal services or the needs of the largest corporations? 

With a room full of many different stakeholders of this industry, we will work collaboratively in small discussion groups to envision solutions that can accelerate the pace of change in the industry. These opportunities might include things such as changing regulations, creating new KPIs, reimagining how our existing data can be used to #makelawbetter, creating "a movement," etc. Together, let's move from "Why" to "How"!
