Course overview
Legal tech is often discussed in terms of future disruption, AI, etc. The past legal tech revolutions are often overlooked and misunderstood - even though they have been absolutely critical for the development of the modern firm and its radical growth. They also enable the firms to make it through the pandemic, and paved the way for flexible working arrangements and hybrid work. 
Properly understood, the legal revolutions of the past allow for a precise understanding of some of the most important issues today in law firm management – in terms of leadership, work-life balance, collaboration, and bottom-line outcomes. They also challenge us to think hard about real changes in law firms and the way they are so difficult to manifest.
