Appointment as a Centre for Legal Innovation (CLI) Distinguished Fellow is open to anyone who has a proven practice-based specialism/expertise that intersects law and innovation (for example, College of Law staff, lawyers, other professionals, and consultants).
All Distinguished Fellows are expected to lead, develop, or take on aspects of the Centre's events, seminars, workshops, labs, incubators, podcasts, webinars and/or roundtables. Distinguished Fellows are remunerated for their work. They are appointed for one year or for the length of the development and roll out of their work with the Centre.
Sam’s Fellowship will focus on a comprehensive review and analysis of how, why, when, where and what legaltech is being used in the legal ecosystem. During his Fellowship with the Centre, Sam will draw and expand on his work in advising in-house counsel in the areas of agile work/management and the use of legaltech, as well as his passion for collaboration, experience sharing and podcasting. Sam will author a series of blog posts and podcasts throughout his Fellowship, culminating in a user-friendly guide about legaltech and its role in creating, transforming, and delivering contemporary legal services and products.
