The 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.
Legal Protection International is hosting the 30th Annual International Legal Protection Insurance Congress. Join the event physically in person or virtually online.
The event will be broadcast live online for virtual attendees. For the full experience, there are a number of limited places available to attend in person ‘physically’ at The Hague Marriott. For more information visit the Hybrid section below.
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. 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

Who will deliver the best services for policy holders in the future and how can this be achieved and assured? Lawyers, Legal Technology and Legal Insurance: how important is the human factor?
