The congress showcases legal service innovations driven by digitalization and globalization. A specific focus is on the global movement towards a sharing economy, both in theory and in practice. Does this trend offer new opportunities for providers of legal services in general and for legal protection insurers in particular? Can it deliver solutions where access to justice is not sufficiently available?
Innovators in the legal field and the broader sharing economy will explain their unique business models, discuss key traits and how delegates could successfully make them work for their businesses and customers. Thus providing an exceptional opportunity for legal protection insurers and others who are active in the legal world, to investigate how the sharing economy and digitalization will help achieve our common goal of greater access to justice.
Access to justice is essential for all societies that depend on the rule of law. Yet many cannot afford the legal services they need because of increasing fees and complexity. Digitalization and globalization pose new legal questions and problems, and change how we live, work, and collaborate in our private as well as professional environments. Due to these developments, people face new challenges and therefore look for new solutions to meet the demands of modern life.
