Skills at Scale and the Legal Function
As modern businesses scale in size and complexity at an unprecedented pace, the legal function must align its response with the needs of the business. The site of that alignment in the legal function is increasingly to be found in legal operations. While there is sophisticated global discussion of the roles of process improvement and technology tools in optimising the legal function through legal operations, the people element has tended towards a flat discourse on upskilling and re-skilling as a response to technology. Join the leaders in this session as they re-frame the people challenge in legal operations and business alignment by examining skills development as a response to the scale (volume and complexity) of business.

Technology and Talent in a Time of COVID19
COVID19 has undeniably accelerated the adoption of technology to advance learning and professional development. But deeper than this, what are some of the implications of the pandemic on how we identify, recruit, manage, develop and retain talent? How is technology providing the means to achieve desired outcomes when it comes to equipping talent with competencies to thrive under these dynamic and uncertain times? How are various industries embracing technologies in the learning and development of their talent? And what are some key strategies that the legal industry can employ to ensure that it creates conditions for its talent to thrive through this period of challenge and emerge with enhanced capabilities to meet future industry demands?

This discussion examines how wicked problems at the intersection of law, business, and technology have created necessities that present an opportunity for innovation in a way that challenges traditional geographical and professional silos.
