WHY A CERTIFICATE THAT FOCUSES ON LEGAL TECH?

The legal industry has changed more in recent years than in its entire history. Without a doubt, technology has been a key inducer in evolution, forcing us to rethink business models, processes, and create new areas of law.

Legal tech is the application of technology in the legal sector that requires forethought and knowledge to understand how technology is evolving customer needs.

Law firms and legal departments need to innovate, customers demand efficiencies and process improvements, justice calls for better delivery systems, and regulatory reform efforts predict a new era of private sector involvement in legal service delivery.

Without a doubt, exploring and learning about legal tech is an opportunity for participants in their professional careers, both as entrepreneurs and as lawyers.

Tailored to the specific needs of law firms and legal departments, marketing, and especially legal marketing, provides a tool for understanding the market. Above all it will help to make the right strategic decisions.

After completing the course, participants will know how to position themselves in this digital era, decide on the type of legal services they want to provide, how to apply the marketing mix to create a marketing plan, and how to plan effective commercial actions that are adapted to changes in the market.

The virtual campus is available anytime, anywhere. It is a space for continuous learning far beyond the limitations of a traditional classroom.

Digital Blended Learning

We’re revolutionizing the digital learning experience. In fact, we’re no longer talking about online only, but rather an interactive and collaborative learning experience, that’s digitally powered. That’s because not only will participants be exposed to one of the most innovative e-learning platforms that utilizes the latest technology, they’ll also have an opportunity to meet and work with some of the world’s leading subject matter experts in the fields of technology.

  • Meet and network with other program participants from around the world.

Even though our online courses are open to hundreds of participants, each cohort is capped at 50 participants. And, by connecting digitally and working in much smaller groups with their peers, participants will have the feeling of a personalized learning experience, as if they were in the same classroom.

Professional Networking
