The Centre for Legal Innovation launched its Roundtable Series in Perth on 20 February 2017.
Our Roundtables identify and explore how global trends impact the practising legal professions locally, regionally and nationally. We conduct our Roundtables in Australia, New Zealand and Asia - Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Auckland, Wellington, Singapore, Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. These are invitation-only facilitated events that involve lawyers (from private practice, in-house, government agencies and community legal centres), legal professionals, professional service organisation professionals, legal associations, legaltech start-ups, academics and legal industry consultants.
Participants are encouraged to attend with the intention of entering into candid discussion, sharing their experience and asking questions of each other in the course of the two hours they spend together. These conversations remain private with participants encouraged to continue to strengthen their network through connections made at the Roundtables and joining a dedicated CLI Legalpreneurs Roundtable LinkedIn Private Group.
In 2019, Roundtable Series participants will be take part in a number of facilitated mini sprints aimed at finding solutions to innovation challenges. Our first topic will address “Can we fix the law firm business model?”
