The 2018 Emerging Legal Professions Research

ALPMA and The Centre for Legal Innovation at The College of Law (CLI) have joined together to undertake one of the most comprehensive surveys of the emerging professions in legal practice in Australasia.

Our objective in working together is to gather empirical data to identify those areas in legal practice that have changed the most, understand who does what, and identify how these non-lawyer professionals should (or should not) be regulated.

Our focus is not as much on the work undertaken by lawyers (lawyer work) but rather all of the other work (legal work) which may once have been done by lawyers but is no longer necessarily the case.

"Disruption has certainly had a positive impact. It makes lawyers analyse what they do for their hourly  rate more than they ever have before. That can only be a good thing for the profession and clients.  They have to work quicker and smarter."
