Legal Innovation 

Let’s Talk About Change



Innovation is a hot topic at every legal conference. The legal discipline is more preoccupied with identifying innovation in other areas than with analyzing the characteristics of its own innovations. 

Innovation is the result of two primary components: an idea and its implementation. It is an action capable of altering reality, changing the status quo. Innovation is an extended process, not a one-time occurrence. It begins with an idea, but also requires time, resources, and additional factors to bring about its implementation.


What is Legal Innovation?

Legal innovation is the development or introduction of new legal norms and concepts in order to establish institutions and influence the formulation of novel processes and standard procedures. 


Why encourage Legal Innovation?

Historically, transactional models of legal services and education have been slow to respond to change. However, as breakthroughs in different vital aspects of man’s life are happening, there has been an increasing demand by individuals all over the globe to promote and support legal innovation. Here’s why:

  • Increased Access to Justice
  • Increased Representation in Minority Issues
  • Restores Trust in the Legal System
  • Increases Efficiency
  • Transparency and Predictability
  • Provision of Proactive Solutions
