ILAWS Seminar Abstract: Myriad forces are converging to disrupt and transform the business of law in the UK and globally. Drivers behind the change include the growing disciplines of legal tech, legal operations and alternative legal services. Law firms ignore the changing landscape at their peril, but exciting and diverse opportunities exist for those willing to embrace the change.
