Erik P.M. Vermeulen on Legal Tech and the Future Lawyer in Amsterdam

Erik P.M. Vermeulen gave a presentation (Are Legal Departments Ready for the Future?) at the NGB Conference in Amsterdam on November 22, 2018.

The exponential growth of digital technologies has been hugely disruptive of the centralized organizations and systems that dominated twentieth-century economic and social life.

Most obviously, information technology has transformed how organizations operate. The effect of this continued disruption has been to break down traditional hierarchies and established roles and procedures. All organizations now exist in a continuous state of flux as they struggle to accommodate successive waves of new technology. Legal Departments must be better prepared.
