The Knowledge Series 2020 Abu Dhabi Edition took place on Wednesday, 16th December 2020

After traversing the globe, The Knowledge Series 2020 – Transformation in the Legal Industry, came home to Abu Dhabi on 16th December. Before wrapping up in Abu Dhabi, we fostered engaging discussions in India, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, the US, and UK, about the effects of litigation funding, legal technology, digitisation of Courts and the evolution of how law is practised and taught, as accelerated by the pandemic’s impact.

One of the biggest transformations has taken place here in the region – the signing of the Abraham Accords between Israel and the UAE, which ushers in a new era of dialogue and co-operation.

For this special edition, we spoke with prominent lawyers, pioneering legal tech entrepreneurs, and world class investors in both Israel and the UAE. They shared their perspectives on how the legal field is evolving globally and regionally, what this new era of collaboration holds in terms of technology transfer, investment opportunities, and the work to be done to create a beneficial legal framework for all participants.

This one is not to be missed – Enjoy the full recorded session below.
