Global Legal Innovation Summit At Northwestern Law

Thought leaders and change makers from across the globe will gather at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in May to address the innovative transformation currently taking place in the legal industry around the world.

“Beyond Our Borders” is a two-day global legal innovation summit May 3-4, 2018, which will address the legal changes occurring within the U.S. and across the world. The event, held on the law school’s Chicago campus, is free and open to the public, but registration is required

As legal practitioners across the globe develop unique strategies to keep up with and contribute to the changing legal landscape, this gathering of international leaders will create an opportunity for cross-cultural learning and the exchange of ideas.

Topics of discussion will include recent technological advances, new legal service delivery models, entrepreneurialism and the new legal buy/sell dynamic. Leaders from the legal community—regulators, firm and in-house attorneys, technologists, legal educators, marketers and media—are encouraged to attend. 

“It’s exciting to be part of a gathering of leaders from different parts of the legal ecosystem and across national boundaries,” says Mark Cohen, CEO of Legal Mosaic and Distinguished Fellow of the Law School’s Center for Practice Engagement and Innovation. “There is an emerging global community bent on improving access, efficiency and impact of legal services. These experts will bring the changes to life from first-hand experience.”

Each speaker will address the legal innovations that are showing up in their corners of the world and will discuss the implications of these changes on a local and global scale. Presentations will be followed with a moderated discussion led by Northwestern Law faculty. The event will give the public the opportunity to engage with the individuals leading the industry’s unprecedented transformation.

Speakers include Andrew Arruda, CEO and co-founder, ROSS Intelligence, John Fernandez, U.S. chief innovation officer and partner, Dentons & Global Chair, NextLaw Labs, and Daniel Rodriguez, dean, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law.
