Join this seminar session to hear an informed opinion from an acknowledged “legal thought leader” on what the legal services market of the future will be and how you as a prospective lawyer or law related professional services provider can leverage your LLB degree into a successful professional career.
The era of exclusive relationships with a lawyer sitting behind a mahogany desk administering expensive advice is coming to a close. Clients demand flexibility and choice in the delivery of legal services. For example, many are seeking a medical clinic model where other service providers work in conjunction with lawyers to provide targeted and as-needed services.
