Product description

Learn and adapt to the evolving trends within the legal profession.

In order to adapt to these inevitable changes within law firms or in-house legal teams, there needs to be more focus on the interconnection between people, process and technology. The artisanal practice of law is being challenged by law companies and other massive corporates such as Amazon that can operate at huge scale with the help of enterprise systems and new legal technology. Systems thinking will help lawyers understand how people, process and technology within an organisation interact so that they are able to understand their law firm or their corporate legal team from a holistic point of view, not only the strict practice of law.

This course is for legal professionals.

Course duration is 3 weeks. Course format: Self-paced, interactive tutorials; videos and assessments. Certificate is issued on successful completion of course.


Table of contents


This course is designed to help guide the next generation of lawyers, to be better lawyers and transform a profession, that has largely remained the same for hundreds of years, in how legal services are delivered. It has been built from an in-house legal perspective, but will be useful for practitioners in law firms too, as many of the same principles apply and it will give these firms better insight into what will be expected from them in this increasingly digitised world.

The key takeaways from this course are:

1. - The distinction between the practice of law and the delivery of legal services;

2. - Why people are the key to transformation;

3. - How systems thinking can help lawyers understand the interdependency between people, process and technology within an organisation;

4. - How waste and over-lawyering can be reduced through sound end-to-end processes; continuous improvement, data and outcomes thinking;

5. - How Design Thinking can make lawyers more human-centred lawyer; and

6. - Demonstrating that law tech is a tool not the solution on its own.
