The rise of the in-house legal technology and operations team (2)

Time: 12:25 pm - 12:00 am

Date: Day 2 Thursday 14 February 2019


Is the legal ops role a fad, or here to stay?  What kind of skills are needed?  Have lawyers who move into ops been co-opted into a role or made a conscious decision to leave legal work behind?  Is it realistic for lawyers to return to purely legal work and how can lawyers stay marketable?  What is the perspective of non-lawyers moving into legal operations?  Do legal ops roles have a long-term place in one organisation after the immediate book of change has been delivered?
