Starting on 24 August 2020
USD 49

About the course:

The legal industry has been fairly slow to embrace technology. It was not until 2018 that the there was a whopping 713% increase in legal technology investment. According to Bloomberg Law, there is a total of US$1.229 billion in legal technology funding in 2019. Legal industry practitioners have begun to keep an eye out for digital tools available to streamline their customer experience. Even though the human element in the legal industry is a vital component, digital transformation can effectively improve the delivery of legal services in practical and innovative ways.  

However, digital transformation is complex and many organisations are struggling with it. It is important to recognise that achieving success in digital evolution is a realistic and manageable goal. According to Forbes, 70% of digital transformation initiatives fail to reach their stated goals because of two primary reasons:  

  1. Lack of solid understanding of the root of the organisation’s issues 

  1. Failure to align internally to plan and execute transformation strategy.
