Our legal profession is not alone in facing the onslaught of technology. Every jurisdiction however has its own ways of meeting this challenge. Resist or embrace? Bar leaders from overseas jurisdictions will share their experience of these technological challenges.

Will globalisation comes the inevitable convergence of Common Law and Civil Law? Will the harmonisation of these 2 main bodies of legal systems brings more harm or good? How does common law lawyers deal with civil law issues and vice versa in a borderless world? The invited bar leaders will attempt to address these questions as the call for the integration of Asia’s constituent economies gets stronger!
