We all know that new technology without adoption, isn’t useful to advancing our organizational goals nor does it highlight the value of the technology.

But how do you articulate the value of the technology without adoption? It’s a bit of the chicken or the egg conversation that anyone deploying a new technology faces. Join us as we discuss how business sponsors can articulate the adoption and value of legal technology to drive sustainable change.

Questions Rachel will ask Nikki:
• Adoption is critical to the success to legal technology, during the planning process when should the conversation around adoption take place?
• Do you think challenge to legal tech adoption is a US centric problem or is this a global industry problem?
• Do you think lawyers are really change adverse or is the value not always articulated?
• Who should decide if technology is successfully adopted? Who is responsible for articulating the value?
• What skills do you think need to be applied to have successful adoption?

The legal community responded to the impact of the pandemic and lockdown by innovating rapidly and adopting virtual hearings. The UK commercial courts were ahead of the curve and delayed only four cases during the national lockdown period.

International arbitration matters continued to be heard around the world. The real innovation lies beyond just the use of video conferencing tools like Zoom and Microsoft.

In this podcast, learn how virtual hearings have continued to evolve, improve, and gain traction throughout the world in 2021.

Questions Marlene will ask the speakers:

  • What are the most significant changes to the hearing and trial process caused by online access? Good and bad. (Begins at 00:46 seconds)
  • There are certainly technical challenges with any online experience. What are some that are particular to online hearings and trials? (Begins at 4:54)
  • How about ethical issues? Approvals to host, rules of engagement? What do you have to consider and how do you ensure everyone is behaving appropriately? (Begins at 8:42) 
  • Does the non-legal prep work differ at all? If you are presenting at trial, It might be more like theatre in terms of delivery. But online is more like television. You have to worry about things like your background and lighting. I know people who take classes to learn about where to look at the camera and how to move. Things perhaps a broadcast journalist or social media influencer would learn (Begins at 12:56)
  • What is one funny experience you have had in an online hearing or trial? Any cat people? (Begins at 17:29)

Microsoft recently renamed Intune to Microsoft Endpoint Manager. This reflects Microsoft's strategy to promote and enhance this tool for use not only as a MDM platform, but to replace SCCM to manage PCs. In this podcast, the moderator will ask the two speakers to tell a little bit about past experience with Intune, what has changed, where is Endpoint Manager in its lifecycle and how would you go about implementing and using this. In addition, they will discuss is this something that your average I.T. admin could set up, deploy and maintain, or would one engage a 3rd party for setup and what are the obstacles?
