Australia’s legal profession has made great strides, in recent years, in transforming day-to-day practice methodologies. However, are lawyers their own worst enemies when it comes to achieving true and lasting innovation?

On this episode of Legal Lightbulbs, our hosts — Lawyers Weekly editor Jerome Doraisamy and Bowd chief executive Fionn Bowd — speak with ALTA president and Legally Yours chief executive Karen Finch about barriers to innovation for lawyers, but also the unexpected creativity of lawyers. 

The trio also debate whether legal practice should be focused on innovation even with economic storm clouds on the horizon, and the disparity between box-ticking exercises and truly innovative mindsets. They also provide some practical advice to lawyers who believe that things should be done better, but they aren’t sure where to start.
