For a very long period lawyers were overboard of automatisation processes, but for the only last three years situation has changed dramatically and interest to Legal Tech has increased. Apart from all this hype and sort of talks as “robots will replace lawyers”, issues on legal market transformation under the technologies pressure and implementation of effective “road maps” for automatisation remain unsettled. We invite participants to informal discussion in World Café format for exchanging on practical topics of Legal Tech implementation in legal business.
