WHY A LEGAL INNOVATION & TECH FEST?

The world is changing. Businesses are more demanding. Fee models are evolving. New technologies are emerging. And the pressure is on for law firms and legal businesses to operate more efficiently and effectively. Technology is disrupting (and enabling) the practice of law, which is why we are hosting the Legal Innovation & Technology Fest.

THE TELSTRA INNOVATION STORY

Two years ago Telstra Legal launched a series of design thinking workshops and innovation sprints to tackle a set of productivity opportunities.  In 2016 this programme of work resulted in a saving of more than 40,000 lawyer hours and recognition by Financial Times of Telstra Legal as Asia Pac’s most innovative legal department for 2016.  In 2017 Telstra Legal tackled an even bolder set of initiatives resulting in more top awards in the United States and a new Harvard Law School case study on the Telstra Legal innovation programme.  This presentation will explain how these results were achieved and why collaboration was a critical element of success.
