Om boka

For most legal teams operating in the COVID-19 age, the focus on near-term survival has passed, and attention has turned to what the 'new normal' might be. With the pandemic overhauling the traditional way in which lawyers practise and serve their clients, the profession turning remote overnight and increasing their use of collaboration platforms and other legal tech, it is likely that legal practice has changed for good, and those prepared to embrace and seize opportunities from this change will be best-placed to flourish in the years ahead.

Legal Practice Transformation Post-COVID-19 imagines the post-COVID world for legal services and asks what has changed, what will stay the same and what values are critical to ensure the successful operation of legal teams in the post-pandemic age.

It considers a variety of aspects crucial to the future of the legal profession, including:
*The impact of technology;
*Remote working;
*Health and safety; and
*Culture and community.

This Special Report will be invaluable reading for lawyers in private practice, in-house counsel, professional support staff and all those involved in the delivery of legal services, to understand what the future of the profession will look like, and how to thrive within it.
