How To Enter

Answer "THE QUESTION" and "THE WHY" on the entry form below.

Competition Entry Deadline: 26th September 2021

The Question

Legal departments are forcing many of the changes to the ecosystem. They are creating much of the pressure that is happening across the ecosystem.  In-house departments have to justify costs and must optimize resources; they have to track data more effectively than ever before.  


As you think about the current legal ecosystem regionally, and globally, please provide details of what you see as the biggest technology challenges corporate legal teams need to address over the next 12-18 months? 




The Why

The future of legal technology adoption rests with the increase in awareness and technology skills. It is now becoming critical that as a lawyer you have an understanding of the technology landscape and the different tools available. There needs to be a technical layer to your skillset to ensure you are becoming the lawyer 2.0 that corporations will need going forward. Recent research indicates inhouse lawyers accept that legal technology will be used daily in the near future and therefore being digitally proficient is a must have to remain future proof. 

The future legal professional needs to have an in-depth understanding of technology and experience across legal and business use cases.

Legal professionals have to ‘future proof” themselves in this rapidly changing business environment.

Please tell us why you should be awarded the scholarship and how it will help you develop as a legal professional and/or benefit your firm/department?
