It’s digital companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook that lead the way and call the shots. A downpour of technology has turned businesses on their heads, and caught in this thunderstorm is the legal sector. It is against this backdrop that modern companies have started to demand a totally new skill set from lawyers.
That’s where the Master in Legal Tech comes in.
