I am speaking at Reinvent Law London on 20 June 2014. The title of my talk is ‘Improving’, inspired by a blog post of the same name by Jon Busby : Improving.
The truth is that lawyers are trying to reinvent themselves into something they will never be instead of improving on what they actually are.
The premise of my talk is that you might be able to reinvent your law firm by improving it a bit at a time. I will look at real life examples from my own law firm, Inksters, in the presentation.
This will be stuff from the coal face that I think is often missing from legal futurist and technology conferences where the focus tends to be on star gazing to 2034 rather than what can actually happen today.
A quick look at the 24 speakers announced so far suggests that perhaps only 4 are practicing lawyers and I think I might be the only UK based one of those.
I have long been a campaigner for Scott Greenfield to be invited to talk at a Reinvent Law Conference.
.@TheTimeBlawg I thought you were going to put in our bid for Artificial Intelligence in the Law through interpretive dance? #reinventlaw

Looks like that day has yet to come.
@TheTimeBlawg I see I’ve been shunned by #ReinventLaw again. It’s up to you Brian. Dance! Dance like the wind!

I will see what I can do without Scott on 20 June. Whether I dance solo remains to be seen! Book your free ticket (or give a donation when you do so) to the event now to find out: Reinvent Law London 2014 Tickets

Brian, this sounds very interesting. I am attending, so look forward to hearing what thoughts you have to add to the mix.
I am afraid I had never heard of this conference. I wonder how widely it was publicised amongst practising UK lawyers?
It was well publicised via Twitter. Follow #ReinventLaw to catch the next one and hope to see you there.
