Nottingham Law School hosts Legal Tech Insight Event with Freeths

Nottingham Law School hosted Richard Hodkinson, Chief Technology Officer at Freeths, for an innovative Legal Tech Insight Event on Wednesday 27 March 2019.

Richard Hodkinson of Freeths facilitated the Legal Tech event

Students are often required to demonstrate to law firms that they understand “Law Tech”, yet it can be difficult to articulate what this actually means for commercial practice.  In his presentation, Richard not only explained a range of technological innovations and outlined how they are used in legal practice, but also got students to knuckle down and apply their newly found knowledge to a practical problem.

Wednesday’s event is part of NLS’s work in embedding an understanding of innovative technologies and their applications in legal practice into both the curriculum and extra-curricular activity.

Freeths is a top 50, commercial law firm and a Strategic Partner with Nottingham Law School.
