The goal is to map when data-driven decision-making is a good idea and when it is not. Further the session, will explore what to look for in terms of actions taken from data alone (bias, available data) and give tips how to get started and where to find structured data within your organization/firm to get started for a quick win.

Questions Christiane will ask Andrew:
• How can data enhance decision making?
• When is it not appropriate?

Change management is a critical part of any successful project or initiative. With so much change happening both in the legal industry and in the world as a whole, a good change management program has never been more important, especially if your firm expects to continue with a hybrid work model into the foreseeable future.

In this podcast, we’ll talk to Sharon Ford, Change Management Manager at Perkins Coie, about how to think about change management in a hybrid workplace.

Questions that Holly will ask Sharon:

1. Over the past two years, people have gone through a tremendous amount of change. Does the pace of change in the world at large impact how we talk about change internally to our stakeholders and end users?
2. What are some aspects of change management that become more important when communicating with a hybrid workforce?
3. What are some specific issues, or ‘gotchas’, that people involved in change management efforts may not realize will be problematic?
4. A successful change management effort will always tailor the message to the audience. Has the way you think about different audiences changed in a hybrid environment?
5. If you could provide listeners with one (or two!) takeaways for putting together a successful change management initiative in a hybrid environment, what would it be?

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)
