We are delighted to share with you the recording of our recent Professional Practices Alliance (PPA) webinar on ‘What might the Future hold for Law and other Professional Services Firms?’, in which our expert guest speakers from the Law Society of England and Wales (LSE&W) discuss the future of Law and Professional Services firms based on the findings of their recent research into changes and uncertainties in the legal profession in England and Wales over the next 30 years, through the lens of global trade and competition.
In this webinar, you can hear Chair, Rob Millard, Director of the Cambridge Strategy Group and speakers, Dr Tara Chittenden and Dr Kion Ahadi, of the Law Society of England and Wales, discuss issues including the following:
- How potential future change will have an impact on diversity and inclusion, particularly in more senior positions;
- How Generation Z have begun to reshape global politics as we see a generational shift in allegiance and identity;
- Whether the rise of machines will free up time vs threaten jobs; and
- How, according to research carried out by LSE&W, it is expected that, by 2030, the workforce in the legal sector, including lawyers and legal support staff, will reduce by half.
