ROBOTICS AND ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE: THE LIMITS OF CONSCIOUSNESS

The future that is approaching will bring us a unique technological breakthrough, the time when artificial intelligence reaches and exceeds human intelligence. Technological change is exponential, so things that today seem unattainable for most of us will become accessible to all in a future that is getting nearer and nearer: preventing genetic diseases, controlling the physical aging processes or even, according to some scientists, the possibility of downloading human consciousness into a robotized body. But what are the limits? How will this affect the legal profession?

José Luis Cordeiro

Fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science. Director of Millennium Project.

10:15
THE IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY ON COMPANY LEGAL AND COMPLIANCE DEPARTMENTS

For years, technology has been changing the way businesses work, seeking to increase productivity and competitiveness, and provide a better service to internal clients. The three major companies will share their experiences with us, and we will also find out the different way that digital transformation is approached in legal and compliance departments, and in their relations with the law firms that provide services to them.

TRANSFORMATION IN THE PROVISION OF LEGAL SERVICES

An adequate marketing strategy is the key to gain the attention of clients, working on aspects such as quality, metrics, cost, transparency, improvement in processes and a total alignment of interests. This will allow clients to make better decisions when contracting legal services, by being able to identify the most suitable lawyer for every need. The greatest opportunity in the transformation of the legal service is also its biggest challenge.

Mark Cohen

CEO LegalMosaic (Washington D.C., USA). Distinguished Fellow, Northwestern University School of Law.

Introduction by

Alejandro Osma

Partner at Pérez-Llorca.

12:30
ETHICS AND CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY IN LAW FIRMS

That the legal profession must be exercised with the highest ethical demands, even beyond legal requirements, is something that is fully accepted. Two personalities from the world of law and philosophy will debate, based on examples from the seventh art, on what ethics in the legal profession means, and what lawyers’ responsibility is to their clients, their collaborators and to society in general.

Javier Gomá

Philosopher, jurist, writer and director of the Fundación Juan March.

Eduardo Torres-Dulce

Of Counsel at Garrigues. Former Chief Public Prosecutor.

13:30
CHALLENGES IN THE MANAGEMENT OF A GLOBAL FIRM

The economy has become globalized and more and more global law firms are operating in the world, as a result of intercontinental mergers and openings in key jurisdictions in all continents. Spanish lawyer Juan Picón, who heads one of the biggest law firms in the world with global turnover of 2.470 billion dollars and more than 8,500 employees, will point out the opportunities and difficulties that major law firms are currently facing, and will set out his vision of the future of the legal profession.

NEW TALENT MANAGEMENT

Being able to attract and retain the best talent is vital for the success of law firms, which are very human capital intensive. In a very competitive legal market and in a society with new needs, it is necessary to innovate in the implementation of human resources policies that will improve people’s lives and become a competitive advantage for the firms. What are the challenges associated to talent facing the legal sector? What practices are working? What ideas can other sectors bring? How is technology being used in this role?

THE IMPACT OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ON THE LEGAL PROFESSION

The implementation of artificial intelligence in law firms is forcing lawyers to rethink a profession in which, in the near future, as well as technical knowledge of the law, the capacity to work with these tools will be indispensable. How far can this process evolve? Are the jobs of many lawyers in danger? How should we prepare for change?

Francisco J. Martín

Doctor in artificial intellgience. CEO BigML (Oregon, USA).

Introduction by

Isabel López-Bustamante

Partner at Deloitte Legal.

17:30
INNOVATION PROCESSES IN MAJOR PROFESSIONAL SERVICE FIRMS

Innovation is the key to growth and to models that will be sustainable in the face of so many changes of paradigm in the legal sector: rethinking strategies, models and services, and even the way of presenting themselves to clients. The major professional services firms, with legal advising areas that are becoming more and more powerful and established have detected the need to create ecosystems that will foster the culture of innovation as part of their strategy to generate value for clients and are spearheading change in the sector with different innovation projects in different areas.

LEADERSHIP, STRATEGY AND ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE

We are experiencing very significant changes in the way the legal profession is being practised: as well as strictly legal changes, the unstoppable development of technology and its impact on the work of lawyers, the way services are provided, the technification of management roles in law firms, the more competitive environment and the fall in prices or the need for new skills in law professionals (e.g. commercial skills). Success awaits the most innovative organizations: they will be reinvented, identifying the key aspects necessary to produce change and leading and preparing their teams, processes and resources so that the adaptation takes place smoothly and efficiently.
