Today I am talking to Neil Rose of Legal Futures about the changing legal landscape in 2011. Legal Futures is the brainchild of Neil Rose, who has been writing about the Legal Services Act since its genesis in the OFT report of 2001. Neil is a highly experienced legal journalist, having spent 12 years working on the Law Society’s Gazette, latterly as Deputy Editor and including a lengthy spell as Acting Editor in 2007. A qualified solicitor, he went freelance in January 2008.
The Legal Futures Conference will take the temperature of the legal market as it hurtles towards its biggest ever shake-up. Almost exactly six months before the introduction of alternative business structures and outcomes-focused regulation, are lawyers striding into a brave new world, or going to hell in a handcart?
We have assembled an unparalleled line-up of regulators, practitioners, innovators and thinkers so that delegates can hear first-hand the opportunities and threats for the profession as a whole, practices and individual lawyers.
