This session will draw together our attendees from all three disciplines: the business of law; talent management and diversity; and marketing; to harness the power of all stakeholders in driving the profession forward. We will map out what the future relationship between client and provider looks like.
 
The session will explore:
  • Who will clients look to hire?
  • How will those providers need to be structured?
  • What services will they need to offer?
  • What roles will they need to hire?
Come prepared to be creative and work with stakeholders from the client, law firm and ALSP side, as well as across C-suite disciplines. This is an issue the whole industry needs to address and one that can be advanced with collaboration and a willingness to think outside the box. What will the firm of the future look like when you are done drawing it up? What will a client-provider relationship mean in 2-5-10 years? What skills will lawyers need? You can write the script!
