The Law Society of NSW has recently launched a significant report into the Future of Law and Innovation in the Profession. In this episode Kate Galloway and Melissa Castan discuss the main messages for the legal profession, and consider what the new challenges for legal educators, and law students, might be. Is it time for the regulators to reconsider the ‘Priestly 11’ compulsory units of study, and the construction of a modern, adaptable law qualification?
Kate Galloway has written on this here in ‘A roadmap for the legal profession‘ and ‘Add tech and Stir’ , as well as at length in Text to Bits: Beyond the Revolution in Law and Lawyering.
