Join Major, Lindsey & Africa's Brian Burlant for the "Change, Technically Speaking: On Talent, Lawyer Training, and Cultural Recalibration" session from 1:50pm – 3:05pm.  

In addition to elevating the profile of the general counsel’s office, investments by corporate legal departments in advanced technologies has necessitated the formalized training of corporate counsel unaccustomed to such marked transformation. Thanks to the growing popularity of dashboards and metrics, in-house lawyers are expected to engage directly with a number of new technologies as part of their daily routine. This conversation begins with a high-level analysis of the pace of technological adoption in corporate legal departments today, followed by several real world examples of where and how iconoclastic companies are making in-roads in educating their legal talent.

Through an exercise, participants in this session will be invited to explore the potential value of differing training models at their organizations.
