The Centre for Legal Innovation (CLI) today announced its new Advisory Board to provide advice on the work of the Centre as it enters its second three year cycle. The Board will be led by Co-chairs Warrick McLean, CEO, Coleman Greig Lawyers and Caryn Sandler, Partner and Chief Knowledge & Innovation Officer, Gilbert + Tobin.
The CLI is an innovation-focused think tank established by The College of Law in 2016 to support legal professionals navigating the disruption currently transforming the industry.
The 15 member Advisory Board includes pre-eminent local and international innovators and legalprenuers with experience in different aspects of the business and practice of law.
The Board has representatives working in law firms, in-house in legal departments, law schools, legal consultancies and legal start-ups from Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, UK and USA.
The Board provides guidance and advice on all aspects of the Centre’s work, including the development of innovation-focussed courses and determining topics for CLI’s future roundtables, summits, events, labs, incubators, workshops and research papers.
“The legal industry is transforming a little more every day. How we view lawyers, legal services and products is not the same as it used to be and it will never be the same again. For CLI’s work to remain relevant, we need a group of advisers who share our vision and commitment to supporting the industry through change. Every member of our incoming Board, as with our inaugural Board, has demonstrated a passion for challenging the norm and embracing innovation. I can’t wait for our work to begin in 2020. I know our new Advisory Board will drive us forward into bigger and better initiatives and, I hope our collaboration will continue to do the same for the legal industry too,” said Terri Mottershead, Executive Director, CLI.
