Innovative Lawyers Summit
We are living in a time of unprecedented global reset, where business and the legal industry have to think differently about both their business models and leadership. Both chief legal officers and law firm leaders need to have the ability to horizon-scan and recalibrate risk in an instant.
Uniting a global community of innovative law firm leaders and chief legal officers, this one-day summit will provide deep insights into the future and how to manage uncertainty. With the help of expert FT and RSGI commentators, outstanding CLOs, law firm leaders and Harvard academics, we will explore the future of global capitalism and democracy, the rule of law and role of institutions, generative AI and data, and the strategies that can be used to respond to a multipolar world.
