The networked lawyer: Conscious, conscientious, connected

  • Kathrine Galloway (Invited speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Contemporary legal practice would be impossible without digitally mediated networks, but in a profession trained to identify and avoid risk, digital networks have posed a particular problem for lawyers. Social media in particular have been viewed with suspicion although other networks, principally those associated with the running of business, have been less critically embraced – despite their own risks. As network technologies themselves are evolving, lawyers must connect or become redundant. Kate draws on the law, professionalism in the law, and the world of digital networks to present an achievable, positive model of conscious and conscientious connection for the networked lawyer.
