On 22 July, Terri Mottershead, Executive Director, Centre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific), facilitated a panel discussion that focussed on The Case for Legal R&D – Legaltech Hubs and Innovation. This session launched the Centre’s Reinvent Legal Business Series 2.
Topics discussed included:
- What’s the purpose of innovation/legaltech hubs?
- What do the people leading these hubs do?
- How do the hubs work, and who do they work with or for?
- How do the hubs contribute to legal innovation/legaltech development?
- Are these hubs reinventing lawyer/client relationships through experimentation and additional ways to collaborate?
- Have the hubs become the R&D function of the legal industry?
Terri was joined by an international panel of legal innovation/legaltech hub leaders from law schools and legal practice in Australia, India and the USA:
- Alice Armitage, Professor & Director of Applied Innovation, UC Hastings College of the Law (USA)
- Michelle Grossmann, Chief Innovation Officer & Transformation Lead, Lander & Rogers Lawyers | iHub (Australia)
- Komal Gupta, Head of Innovation, Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas (India)
- Maya Markovich, Chief Growth Officer, Nextlaw Labs at Dentons (USA)
