The legal industry is changing but to what, for whom, where, why and how? Join us each month to learn about the next best practices in legal practice and how it applies to your firm or organisation. Learn from the people who are “walking the talk.” Hear what they are doing and what has driven them to do things differently for their clients, their people, their organisations and themselves and, how they measure and learn from success and failure. We’re going to get candid, super practical and yes, we’re going to get legally innovative too!

What happens when you get a few people passionate about law, the legal industry and legal innovation in one room and chat – this podcast happens!

We launch our podcast series with an insightful, funny and engaging conversation between three amazing legalpreneurs, people who are making change happen for their clients, their people and their firms every day – they also happen to be members of the Chief Innovation Officers Forum (CIOF): 

These folks understand that some in the legal profession are “change challenged,” they have been on their own journeys in coming to the place they find themselves in today and, with thoughtful reflection, empathy and resilience, they work in their law firms and in the profession to push forward, make a difference and uncover the industry’s next best practices.

We chatted about a lot of things, there’s a lot to chat about after all. Topics covered in our conversation included exploring answers to hot button issues like:

  • How you define legal innovation? Can/should you define it?
  • Who should lead innovation in a law firm and in the legal industry?
  • Should innovation be inside to out or outside to in or a bit of both?
  • Can you measure innovation? What are the metrics or KPIs? Does measurement matter?
  • How do you deal with the sceptics, naysayers and blockers to innovation?
  • Does the lawyer personality type mean the legal industry is uniquely change challenged?
  • Can law firms survive if they don’t innovate? Should they survive?
  • Where and how do you start to innovate in the legal industry?
  • What will the lawyers and legal practice look like in the next 3- 5 years?

Thank you so much Alison, Marcus and Mel – we applaud your work and we are inspired by you!
