Verity White was part of this Panel Discussion event, along with Tom Dreyfus and Sam Flynn from Josef and Eric Chin from Alpha Creates.
The Law Institute of Victoria Legal Innovation and Technology Committee in conjunction with PEXA present the ‘Legalpreneurs Expo’ to inspire and educate legal professionals and law students on the ever growing ways to embed legal innovation in your career.
Be inspired by speakers who’re boldly leading the way and disrupting traditional means of delivering legal services. Panelists will include legal-tech-preneurs, legal operations intrapreneurs and change-makers. Deep-dive into what they’re doing and learn how they’re doing things differently. Discover ways to stay competitive and enhance the delivery of legal services, learn about legal technology already in the market and discover what’s on the horizon for the legal innovation sector.
Whether you’re wanting to break into the legal industry for the first time, wanting to optimise the delivery of legal services within an existing organisation, considering your own NewLaw or LegalTech startup or simply wanting to learn more about legal innovation – the Legalpreneurs Expo is for you.
Following the panel discussion, the Expo offers the chance to network with like-minded individuals and representatives from law firms and start-ups pioneering career pathways in the legal innovation sector. Attendees are presented with the opportunity to meet with and learn about exhibitor’s disruptive legal services, such as LegalTech and Legal Operations graduate programs, internships, or volunteering programs. This will enable emerging professionals the ability to begin mapping their career as a legalpreneur.
