For some the Chelsea Flower Show is the start of the London Season, while others know it is when the ReInvent Law London show rolls into town. My colleague, Lisa Webley, has issued an invitation to the next ReInvent Law London.
This year Westminster Law School is hosting Reinventlaw London here in the School. The event brings together legal innovators, legal technology specialists and legal service providers and regulators to showcase new methods of delivery of legal services including virtual law, the use of big data and predictive outcomes software, legal start-ups including alternative business structures and much, much more. Lexis Nexis are sponsoring the event and it will be live streamed around the world. Last year, as a result of contacts made during the event, we managed to obtain 20 paid work placements for our students with one legal start-up company, we hope to better that record this year.
Lucy Tagg, John Flood and I would love for you to join us at the event. Places are limited and all attendees including any of our staff and students will need to register for a free ticket here (http://reinventlawlondon.com/ ) Tickets are going very quickly, so if you would like to attend on 20th June 12.30-6.30 then please do sign up soon.
Further, if you have students interested in learning more about legal innovation and the challenges and opportunities introduced by the Legal Services Act 2007 then please direct them to our 21st Century Law Practice summer school programme which runs from June 8th-23rd in conjunction with Michigan State University: http://www.westminster.ac.uk/
about-us/faculties/law/ courses/summer-school we still have a few places available.
I hope that you can join us and help to make Reinventlaw London 2014 a real success.
