(I most liked) the whistle-stop tour of the legal industry; and the psychology of change session. The change session highlights that it is essential that before introducing tech, you think about how it will land, and you plan for all the different reactions and attitudes.

I enjoy the range of content at the Summit. Legal tech has clearly developed significantly since the Summit started three years ago, but rather than leave people behind or stand still, the programme continues to offer something for everyone. There’s plenty for those needing inspiration and an introduction to the key topics, and for those looking to fine tune or push the boundaries.

The structure of the event really helps with networking. The content was excellent.
