    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


    The professional services industry is undergoing seismic and rapid change globally and locally, with particular impact on the legal services sector. Structural changes include unbundling, outsourcing, fee arrangements and alternative business models. Technological innovations in the professional services industry include including automated document production and review, e-discovery, data analytics, predictive analysis, artificial intelligence, and blockchain distributed ledger technology. These changes, either sustaining or disruptive, are occurring in a broader context of societal change – robotics, connected automated vehicles, and smart cities, and the Internet of Things. The future of work itself is being re-visioned, with legal professionals challenged to consider how they intersect and add value to with increasingly sophisticated levels of automation and technology.
