About the Blog

This blog plays a vital role in our Legal Futures Initiative, providing a venue for posts from our education and training, ethics and regulatory issues and business structures and innovation teams, as well as from thought leaders commenting on the issues raised and progress to date. As well, it provides an opportunity for discussion by stakeholders on those issues. Come back regularly for updates and to join the conversation.
