In our years of studying innovation in the legal profession, we are constantly struck by how for many lawyers it remains an unattainable goal. Often it is confused with invention, inspiration or technology. But these misconceptions aside, becoming the Steve Jobs of law is daunting. But the profession is changing fast and it needs people to help it change.
These people do exist in law firms and corporate law departments but we feel they need encouragement, support and recognition. Hence, we have decided to launch an RSG programme to encourage an entrepreneurial, less risk-averse mindset and a series of regional FT awards that will celebrate the people who are pushing their organisations forward.
