The legal ecosystem is complex, multidisciplinary and evolving. Delivery of legal services and products requires the capabilities of many people working seamlessly in collaboration with each other and customers/clients. Contemporary legal practice is all about new – new law, new professions and specialisms, new areas of practice, and new ways of conceiving, working on and solving new legal problems.

In this session, Terri Mottershead [https://www.linkedin.com/in/terri-mottershead/], Executive Director, CLI [https://www.cli.collaw.com/] discussed with legal innovation/transformation leaders how their firms have defined NewLaw careers; why they have evolved; how the roles have impacted the war for legal talent; and if the roles are reshaping legal practice:
