Delighted to Join the Legal Technology and Innovation Institute

I'm delighted to have joined the Legal Technology & Innovation Institute (LT&I), a market leading institute to deliver practical technology training, develop understanding and awareness and increase experience of relevant legal technologies for legal practitioners across the globe.

The LT&I aims to create a global ecosystem across law and technology by bringing together experts, practitioners, academia, government and technologists from around the world, to provide insights into challenges and successes in legal technology, and collaborate globally.

As part of the LT&I, we are delighted to be launching The Legal Technology & Innovation Certificate (LTIC) which aims to bring a breadth of understanding and engagement to legal practitioners around the world to enable them to engage fully with all relevant technology.

The LTIC is a global programme with an outstanding global faculty and set of partners, designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice to enable the participants to acquire hands-on skills across a broad range of technologies. Heavily focused on functional and practical skills, the LTIC will ensure that participants engage with technology and innovation use cases to pick up key and valuable skills.

The LTIC has gathered an impressive team of partners ranging from big tech, including Microsoft, which will be supporting the programme by providing technology and expertise from their practitioners and clients across international markets, through to some exciting startups and legal institutions from across the globe. These include Middlesex University Dubai, which will be delivering the AI, Data Security and Big Data Analytics modules, with some excellent practical coverage from their faculty and industry practitioners.

Our partnerships extend to global industry practitioners like the World Commerce and Contracting Association, which will support the programme with its participation in the Contracts Innovation module, and we are finalizing engagement with numerous international law societies and bar associations to provide another layer of reach, recognition and credibility to the programme.

We also have an internationally recognized Faculty which includes Mark Beer OBE, Bruno Barata, Laura Fauqueur, Mo Zain, Lucy Endel, Brian Tang, Robert Millard, Joanne Fischlin and many more. Some of the modules within the programme are Innovative Thinking, Blockchain, Smart Contracts, Artificial Intelligence, Responsible AI, LawTech Strategy and Legal Operations. In all there is a selection of 20+ modules.

Our Head of Faculty is Christina Blacklaws, former President of the Law Society of England and Wales and a key player in the UK Lawtech field.

Christina says ‘I’m really delighted to head up the LT&I Faculty and to be involved in this exciting global project. We’ve brought together a dream team of faculty members who are truly global in their perspectives and we already have some great sponsors who also want to be involved. The LTIC is unique in that is designed for those working in law firms and legal departments to gain all the information they need, have the practical experiences that give them confidence and access to some of the most interesting technologies and practitioners through our interactive courses. I’m proud to be involved and excited about what we can achieve for the global lawtech community.’

With over 800 registrations for our first open day the first cohort will start in February 2021.
