‘Legal Protection Lawyer’ -
A Modern Legal Professional

15 & 16 October | The Hague Marriott

Are we ready for the future? The congress will seek answers to whether legal protection insurers respond in a satisfactory way to changes and offer their policy holders tangible solutions. Are lawyers fit to face commercial and technical challenges? How important is the ‘human factor’ for consumers and how can we make the triangle Lawyer – Insurer – Legal-Tech work?

‘Legal Protection Lawyer’ - A Modern Legal Professional

About the Event

A legal issue can threaten lives and therefore it is important to be able to get legal counsel quickly and be prepared for a situation in which a dispute brings about uncertainty, high costs and immeasurable stress. Legal professionals have the necessary expertise to help solve legal conflicts. Legal protection insurers give legal advice, provide financial security, actively support people if needed and pay for a lawyer if necessary. A good legal protection can save a life!

However, times are a-changing and our congress raises the question whether the legal sector, in particular the in-house lawyers of legal protection insurers – “The Legal Protection Lawyer” – are fit for the future. Delegates will look at and compare regulations of the legal profession in different countries. You will see how ongoing societal, technical and other changes impact consumers and their demands. How these developments have a severe, mid to long-term impact on all legal professionals. The congress will show how digitalization invades our working environment and changes working processes of organizations. An explanation will be provided on how legal professionals need to adapt if they want to be “modern”; the new skills they need today which reach far beyond any legal training.  

Who should attend?

Participants will include:

In-house legal counsels, people from HR, marketing, claims departments

Delegates will see how digitalization invades their working environment and impacts / changes working processes in their organisations. Legal insurers will give examples of the (legal) technology they employ to serve their policy holders in a more efficient and timely way. An academic will explain how wide-ranging the training and skills of those who want to survive in the legal services market in the future must be and, to round up the morning’s work, delegates will break up in small groups to scrutinise what it takes for legal insurers to manage and organise their legal work and staff. The afternoon will be dedicated to answering the key question: are we ready for the future? In this context we will look at the impact of technological innovation and digitalization on professional ethics and whether there are possible conflict points. In conclusion, experts will discuss how we can make the triangle Lawyer > Insurer > Legal-Tech work and the importance of the human factor in this respect. In essence, the congress will address what legal insurers and legal professionals must undertake to become truly modern!
