The LP Lab Innovation Incubators launched in mid-2020 in Australia and New Zealand. The incubators provide an opportunity for applicants to conceive, develop and launch an innovation project in their law firm, legal department, Alternative Legal Service Provider, or community legal centre with the online support of Specialist Coaches over 8 sessions.
In 2020, the inaugural cohort of 15 projects fell into one of four key areas: leading and managing the new multidisciplinary workforce; creating a collaborative culture; redefining value; or championing change.
The second Incubator cohort will open for Applications in May 2021If you are interested in receiving information about this program, please express your interest here.
Participation in the Incubators is free.
The Innovation Incubator Specialist Coaches check in with the incubator participant Project Leaders via video conference for a maximum of 8 sessions.
In these coaching sessions, the Specialist Coaches chat with the Project Leaders as a group, to see how the projects are developing, ask Project Leaders to share successes and failures, and together suggest ways to entrench what has worked and keep participants focussed. The Coaches are there to listen, help Project Leaders get their project unstuck, keep the project moving along, pause and focus on lessons learned, and help Project Leaders through any roadblocks.
