Justice System Transformation: Public-Private Partnership Journeys

Synopsis


Provocation: The courts are a service not a place. Online courts and automated court self-help services are transforming how laypersons and legal professionals alike are interacting with justice systems. The pace of change in public sector is being accelerated by innovative partnerships with the public sector and community groups. In this session, legal leaders discuss and share examples of how public-private partnerships can serve the transformation of justice systems not just in terms of efficiencies but also in terms of accessibility and user-centredness. Importantly, even as digitalisation is proposed as a crucial way in which access to justice can be enhanced through lowered costs, how might this be balanced with the risk of creating different barriers such as a digital divide? Beyond innovative applications of technology, how can we ensure that access to justice is served by other forms of innovation and what are some examples of this?

Speakers: 

Ms Catherine Kemnitz, Professor Richard Susskind OBE, Mr Mark A Cohen, Mr Thomas Heilmann, Mr Tan Ken Hwee, Ms Michelle He and Mr Mason Jiang

Legal Business Transformation: New Approaches to Legal Services Delivery

Synopsis

Provocation: Lawyers are not the future of legal services. Solutions to legal problems are increasingly being seen as the remit of the legal function. In this reality, the lawyer is no longer the sole means for delivering legal services. Instead, lawyering is framed as a multidisciplinary endeavour - where the measure of value is the practical outcomes rather than technical legal expertise. In this session, legal leaders share how the business of law is responding to the shifts in what clients value, regulatory stances and the competitive landscape. How does the business of law keep its 'do good' compact with society to safeguard rule of law while also serving the 'do well' imperative? What kinds of innovative legal business models exist to address this tension and how are incumbents evolving to meet the challenge? Should we be talking about the future of lawyering instead of the future of lawyers?

Legal Talent Transformation: Enabling Trusted Future-ready Legal Professionals

Synopsis

Provocation: Current approaches to legal education are largely based on an outmoded philosophy of the nature of legal work. Are definitions of legal talent being re-defined? Traditional approaches to legal education are under increasing scrutiny. While much of the debate plays out in the context of the role of law schools, continuing professional development is also grappling with how to enable the upskilling and re-tooling of lawyers to meet modern legal services demands. Arguably, this is insufficient. If lawyering is increasingly a multidisciplinary function of traditional lawyers and allied legal professionals rather than a single narrow professional identity, then conceptions of what talent is needed in the context of legal services must evolve. In this session, legal and talent development leaders discuss global trends in talent development and management and the implications for the legal industry at two levels: the individual legal industry professional, and employers of such individuals. What do innovative talent development and management models look like and how can businesses retain talent in a competitive talent market?

Speakers

Ms Catherine Kemnitz, Professor Richard Susskind OBE, Mr Mark A Cohen, Mr Rama Tiwari, Professor Philip Anderson and Ms Pei Ying Chua
