Speech by Sir Geoffrey Vos, Chancellor of the High Court: The Future of Law

Abstract: In this lecture, the Chancellor will speak about his vision for the future of lawyers, courts and judges in the coming decades.  He will mainly address the business lawyers’ environment, but will touch also on criminal, family and administrative matters.  His thesis is that Fintech, Legaltech and Regtech will revolutionise the way we educate, train, and utilise legal expertise, and that whilst some of the changes may be slower than people expect, many will be much faster.
