Click here to watch the Newcastle Law School Link & Learn webinar discussion, ‘Law and Technology – The Future of Legal Services’.

Nexus Law Group’s Managing Director Marcus McCarthy was recently invited to speak on a Newcastle Law School panel on the Future of Legal Services, alongside the Dean of the Newcastle Law School Professor, Tania Sourdin, and Executive Director of the Centre for Legal Innovation, Terri Mottershead.

Dr Bin Li moderated the webinar while panelists discussed:

  • The NewLaw Landscape
  • Law in 2030
  • LawTech – Positive Innovation or Negative Disruption?
  • Growth areas for the Profession
  • Navigating the new legal landscape

“NewLaw is more than just business models focused on online technologies or delivering fixed-price legal services. It is about liberating the practice of law from the structures which have historically limited career growth paths and positive outcomes for legal professionals. While a decade ago new legal business models emerged, for the most part, NewLaw is about legal professionals thinking of new ways of doing business, through technology or other means, to create a better situation for both themselves and their clients. No single model will be the ultimate answer. The key is flexibility in the mode of delivery of legal services,” said Marcus.
