In this podcast, a session in our Women Legalpreneurs Special Interest Group 2021/22 series, Terri Mottershead, Executive Director, Centre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia- Pacific) facilitated a panel discussion that explored all things tech for digital legal businesses!

This super practical and candid session started by exploring if you need tech at all, then moved on to discuss questions you should ask of vendors; how to make the best choices for your law firm or in-house legal department or consultancy; how you should approach tech purchases from identifying the right requirements through to connecting new tech with legacy tech, your systems, your business strategy and, managing the change management piece in all of this too!

Terri was joined by a unique panel of legal, tech and knowledge practitioners and gurus from law firms, in-house, tech and legal consultancies:
