——-

The rise of technology to automate day-to-day processes in law firms is no longer new story in the UK and US and the clamour from clients to reduce fees has accelerated this. Africans have taken to mobile technology for financial services with alacrity but will they do the same for legal technology and the benefits it can bring to firms and clients? What challenges are there for training young lawyers especially as many start their careers working on the tasks that are now so easily automated? Is the legislative and regulatory environment for lawyers and tech innovators fit to support these developments?

Rotimi Ogunyemi will be sharing his perspectives on these issues and especially on the issue of legal training and education relevant to the fourth industrial revolution
