Playing in Sandboxes Part 2: The Law Society Of Alberta

Thought sandboxes are interesting after the last episode? Welcome back for part 2. Alberta became the most recent province to vote to create a regulatory sandbox for the delivery of legal services in October. In Canada there are now three sandboxes as Alberta joins British Columbia and Ontario. Join the Law Society of Alberta's Chioma Ufodike, Cori Ghitter and Len Polsky as they talk with us about the road to sandbox creation and what the next steps will be.

Redesigning Legal

As part of our Redesigning Legal Speaker Series, on December 7,, The Center For Innovation and its partners explored the opportunities being created by regulatory innovation for legal education. Titled "The Role of Legal Education, Clinics, and Legal Labs" This program explored the opportunities being created by regulatory innovation for legal education. Panelists focused on how law schools are responding and adapting to the prospect of fewer barriers to innovation that offer increased employment opportunities for their students, more roles for people other than lawyers in the delivery of legal services, the creation of tiered legal service providers, and collaboration across professional fields to provide more and new kinds of legal services.

This panel included Stacy Butler (Director of the Innovation for Justice Program, University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law), Anna Carpenter (Professor of Law and Director of Clinical Programs, University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law), April Dawson (Associate Dean of Technology and Innovation, North Carolina Central University School of Law), and Michele Pistone (Professor of Law and Director of the Clinic for Asylum, Refugee and Emigrant Services, Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law), whose conversation will be moderated by Jordan Furlong (Principal, Law21).
