Jenn McCarron, CLOC Board Member & Director of Legal Operations & Technology at Netflix, led an excellent discussion with industry experts, Meet the Change Makers: Legal Disruption as an Opportunity which trenchantly dug into how Legal Operations can actually take advantage of disruption and turn it into an opportunity to improve an organization’s future prospects and resilience.
It was a visionary session, in the best sense of the word, as it explored practical ideas to “design a new future,” as the session description put it. It’ll take strong leadership and innovation to make it a reality, but what else is the Legal Ops community known for, if not those?
One technology that jumped out?
One of the technologies on display at CLOC 2020 that was really front-and-center for me? Process automation, a technology that has really powered improved efficiency during this period, when so many of us have been working from home. Beyond that, it’s also been an important means of driving cross-functional collaboration for Legal Ops professionals and those they serve.
Mitratech offers a well-regarded workflow automation solution with our TAP product, but this was by no means the only vendor at the conference. In fact, I saw more workflow and process automation vendors at this year’s conference than ever before, which re-enforces its rising importance within the industry. It also reinforces that we at Mitratech owe it to our clients and partners to stay on top of our game if we’re going to stay ahead of the pack.
