Legal Breakfast Briefing - Newcastle

“Tomorrow’s Naked Lawyer 2015-2045” The Art of Reinvention in a Digital, Silicon & Robotic Legal World. It is Chrissie Lightfoot’s opinion, based on research and evidence in her latest book – Tomorrow’s Naked Lawyer: NewTech, NewHuman, NewLaw – How to be Successful, 2015-2045 - that we are transiting through the Digital Age into the Robotic Age and those of us who will embrace this challenge and adapt to this transition will be successful in the present and future. It is her belief that the relentless march of industrialisation, wearable technology, artificial intelligence and robotics will push the boundaries of what it means to be human and social in the very near future. Chrissie will share the secrets with you, going far beyond what you may have already read or heard in the legal and mainstream media, and stimulate thought and action in how to be successful 2015-2045 whether you’re a sole practitioner or an international behemoth. In particular she will:

  • Discuss drivers of change, the present and future of law, the likely role of the lawyer and the impact and opportunities due to Newtech.
  • Share insights into the implications that NewTech and machine intelligence may have on our likely future, clients, society and our working and social roles within it as NewHuman takes hold and the inevitable requirement for NewLaw emerges.
  • Share research, trends, predictions and thoughts in relation to the present and future of marketing, branding and ‘Social Land’.
  • Share key steps from her best-seller book - The Naked Lawyer (2010) - and its recently released sequel - Tomorrow’s Naked Lawyer (Dec 2014) - in how to be a successful SocialHuman Lawyer supported with case studies and success stories; touching on SOCIAL ‘everything’ – social media, social networking, social brand and social business.
