Concept Note

The legal profession has been one of the most conservative professions. It is not particularly unyielding to adaptation, however, its character of being deep-rooted in traditions, customs, and practices does make it less pliant at the core. Technology did make its way into the legal industry slowly but surely. Over the period, huge libraries were replaced by huge databases being accessed at the click of a button. Analysis of legal principles became simpler with different analytical tools being used on the available data. The use of these tools allowed new technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics to take up a lot of tasks that earlier required human efforts. The aid of technology has allowed the legal profession to expand multidimensionally: creating new avenues for the legal profession and new opportunities for legal professionals. The last couple of years created an insuperable challenge to the traditional legal practice, however, the response of the profession was swift and effective. The legal industry embraced the new technologies with intent, alacrity, and prowess. The unexpected disaster forced a digital revolution in the way law is practiced around the world.

The rapid growth of technology has also challenged legal professionals to respond to the change that is introduced to the society at a brisk pace. The traditional understanding of relationships, families, businesses, communication, and transactions; all are acquiring new facets with the emergence of newer technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Blockchain posing questions to the regulators.

It is the most opportune time that the experts of the field deliberate on the emerging questions and share their perspectives; for the businesses to share their questions and concerns; for the legal professionals to equip themselves with the new tools of the industry. The conclave will provide a much-required forum for deliberation on pertinent issues that need the best minds in the legal fraternity to ponder upon, whilst offering real-time solutions that will enable a better future, one where technology and law combined revolutionize the legal profession, calling for skills of a different kind, enabling a holistic transformation enriching societies and nations at large.
