On 8 December 2020, Terri Mottershead, Executive Director, Centre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific), facilitated a panel discussion that focussed on The New Legal Industry Regulatory Regime – Who’s regulating whom, how and why? in the Centre’s Reinvent Legal Business Series 2.
Terri was joined by an international panel of leaders and doers in this space from Australia and the USA:
- John R. Lund, Attorney at Law, Parsons Behle & Latimer (USA)
- Jennie Pakula, Manager, Innovation & Consumer Engagement, Victorian Legal Services Board + Commissioner (Australia)
- Lynda C. Shely, Owner/Attorney, The Shely Firm, PC, Arizona (USA)
- Jason Solomon, Executive Director, Center on the Legal Profession, Stanford Law School (USA)
Topics discussed included:
- In our evolving legal ecosystem, what’s driving regulatory reform?
- What has been/is the focus of that reform?
- What’s the new role of the legal regulator in all this and do they lead or follow?
- Can they/should they encourage experimentation and innovation in legal service/product delivery?
- What’s the link between legal innovation and regulatory sandboxes ?
- And how do we move this important discourse forward so we don’t get left behind?
