Our Story

Last year, we have launched Future Lawyer  because the law industry is heading towards a great change. Some see this as a threat, but we see this as an opportunity. 

This year we are continuing Future Lawyer with a strong focus on innovation in the legal services.

Future Lawyer is co-hosted  with Juristenes Utdanningssenter, and lawyers will be accredited with 6 CPD hours. 

We believe a true entrepreneurial mindset is the right way to approach the new changes, and we also believe you should be part of the change, instead of letting change dictate  your business.

5 Reasons To Attend Future Lawyer:

Sharpen the Saw

Every now and then you need to sharpen your skills to survive and eventually get ahead. The legal industry has up until now been shielded from the consequences of the digital transformation every industry will go through. But something is happening. Don’t react before it’s too late.

Future Lawyer is co-hosted  with Juristenes Utdanningssenter, and lawyers will be accredited with 6 CPD hours. 

Meet experts and thought leaders face to face

At Norway’s first pure legal innovation conference we have invited some of the sharpest legal innovators in the world. Here is your chance to hear them speak and meet them face to face. Don’t miss this opportunity. Your competition isn’t.

Networking opportunities

At this conference, you will not only meet lawyer’s from competing firms, but also your potential next customer. What kind of lawyers do you think they prefer? Forward thinking innovaters, aiming at making better services, or the other guy that relies on everything staying the same?

Good conferences have opportunities for attendees to mix and mingle, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones. Over coffee, lunch, or cocktails, you may make a connection with the perfect provider or prospect. You may find yourself sitting next to your next customer or mentor. 

New tools and takeaways

No one knows everything, but many knows a lot. At Future Lawyer 2018 you’re bound to be inspired, get some tips and insight in new technologies, and new business models. Maybe even concrete tools or ways of working you can implement when you’re back in your office.

An investment in yourself is an investment in your company
