Technology has driven the change of new avenues for lawyers. Unprecedented, lawyers are now faced with tasks of admitting digital evidence into the courts and challenging them. For the corporate lawyers, technology presents a new landscape of compliance, governance, security and regulation. Whilst we see new methods of arguments, novel points being raised, amendments to laws and regulations, technologies such as the Blockchain, the Internet of Things, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence are streaming its impact and shaping the way we practice and communicate.

What will the future of the legal profession be like? Is there a need for lawyers to learn about technology? Will everything be about technology or will it just be merely an enabler? How will technology shape the legal profession? Will the machines take over?

TechTalk is initiated by Bar Council IT, Innovation and Future in Technology Committee (FIT).
