Market conditions, pressure on costs and external spending, doing more whilst having your budget frozen or squeezed, maintaining quality, and facilitating self-service by the business are all factors driving digitalisation.

In-house legal teams are expected to be savvy in using LegalTech and resourcing models, with an underlying mandate to be strategic and cost-efficient. In-house teams expect law firms on their panel to embed innovation, technologies, and new modes of resourcing in their service delivery – at the same time as reducing costs and improving client experience.

The Wolters Kluwer Future Ready Lawyer Survey listed the top challenges for in-house legal teams in 2020 as reducing and controlling costs, automating routine tasks, and leveraging technology, with 82% expecting the law firms that they work with to leverage technology. Whilst, most law firms report that they have made insignificant progress in adopting technology to improve client services and to keep pace with clients’ changing needs.

Attend this webinar organized by Clarilis in conjunction with SCCA, to understand how the adoption of LegalTech (with a focus on drafting automation) is key for lawyers to increase their efficiency. Hear an interactive discussion on closing the gaps in expectations, priorities, and capabilities within and between law firms and corporate legal departments.

There will also be an opportunity to see use cases of document automation within legal departments, via a demonstration of Clarilis, at the end of the session. Including a 10 mins Q&A to hear the challenges faced by the audience in selecting and implementing LegalTech.



Lawyers will learn how the adoption of LegalTech with a focus on drafting automation is key to increase their efficiency. There will be a beneficial discussion about closing the gaps in expectations, priorities, and capabilities within and between law firms and corporate legal departments.
