From February to June 2020, CLI held six roundtables throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Like all our roundtables since 2017, these discussions brought together industry thought leaders from law firms, legal departments, ALSPs, legaltech, and community legal centres, who shared their candid views and experience on what was really happening in practice. These discussion were, as they always are, a glimpse into the day to day challenges and opportunities of contemporary legal practice.

The topic for discussion for this series was Beyond the Legal Innovation Hype, There Is….? It focused on getting into the nitty-gritty of what was really changing in the legal industry, if anything, what was driving change, and what would stick and become permanent. We wanted to understand and share experience on key trends and if they would prove to be a band aid solution applied in a crisis, or foundations stones to a systemic change to legal practice and, why any of this should matter to everyone in the legal ecosystem.

In the middle of the series, the world changed - COVID 19 impacted the legal industry like every other - and forced our industry perhaps unlike most others, to embrace technology and change like never before. How and where this impacted legal practice then, now and in the future, was also discussed in this series.

In this podcast, Terri Mottershead, Executive Director, Centre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific), identified and discussed the key trends that emerged from these roundtables with our panellists, this discussion also subsequently became the ninth podcast in this collection focusing on providing practical support and assistance for those working in the legal ecosystem during this time of extreme change. Our amazing panellists for this session were:
