What a first day we had as we launched our groundbreaking virtual event for Legal Innovators to over 300 people, this was not a podcast, this was not a webinar, this was not a time filler while we sit and wait for things to reverse to ‘normality’.

Cosmonauts & Artificial Lawyer look forward to welcoming you to the first day of our 3 and a half days of great content and networking.

Our first panel discussion topic was on – Building the Practical Foundations for Real Change in Your In-house Legal Team.

We discussed how to make use of billing data, analysis of dispute costs/factors, contract automation, and improving work-flows to drive real change at a foundational level. And, fundamentally, data and how best to leverage this will be central to this discussion.


We had a great selection of guest speakers which included:

For the second act of the day We had Manpreet Dhillon Head of Legal Transformation – ContractPodAi®, presenting a very engaging stand alone presentation on Contingency Planning for a New World of Legal.

Manpreet hosted a particularly popular segment of the day bringing insight to the masses throughout her presentation and Q&A covering key topics such as:

– How to ensure your contract management process is ready to react to any crisis.

– Why adoption of full digital transformation in contract management is more crucial then ever.

– A checklist of what you can be doing now and how to better prepare for the future.



Followed by another panel discussion titled Culture First with key speakers:


They discussed the major challenges of In-house Innovation and how developing the right culture, hiring the right people, and working with the right external advisers. The panel held some very popular polls along the way with a-lot of positive engagement from the attendees.

The team tackled the big question during the very popular Q&A from Esther Dediashvili…


How do you encourage your legal department to innovate? Is innovation part of in-house lawyers’ evaluation process? with Sean suggesting that the best way to providing new innovative legal solutions comes with a strong personal mindset of a lawyer and their team and not just relying on the development new technology to do the work for them.


Its safe to say the Cosmonauts team had a blast on the first day of the 3 part series and cant wait to see what tomorrow brings.

We would also like to thank our sponsors for their input to the event.
