Brave New Law

Small insight innovation

A new programme for forward thinking GCs. We are exploring practical ideas to help with delivering the future of law.

No matter which industry sector you are in, whether a big team or a small team, many of the challenges GCs face are the same.
And they're not all new.
The challenge of doing more with less, of recruiting and motivating talent, of gaining a voice at the boardroom table, pressures to innovate and unravel the best legal tech solutions whilst running strategic projects for the company –  are all issues that have been here for some time. The solutions to these issues can be solved by collaboration and co-creation. 
Over the next 12 months, we will be exploring the future of law over a series of interactive workshops – virtual & physical, articles and interviews.
Through our workshops we will create a safe space for GCs to collaborate and create tool-kits that can help you navigate some of the challenges of the future.
