Bridging the Gap between Law, Tech, Innovation & Entrepreneurship: ReInvent Law Dubai - December 10, 2012

By Wael Nabbout | November 29, 2012 | Section: Announcements |

Michigan State University College of Law will be holding ReInvent Law Dubai, an “un”conference devoted to law, technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship, on December 10 at the DIFC Centre for Excellence in Dubai, where legal professionals, students, entrepreneurs, scholars, and technology experts from around the globe will examine a variety of issues related to the future of law and technology.

The event is aimed at bridging the divide between the ‘traditional’ legal field and technology and entrepreneurship, and creating new ideas to deliver legal services according to Assistant Clinical Professor of Law at Michigan State University College of Law and Co-organizer of the event Sammy Mansour.

The conference builds on the success of a similar event held in London, while a 3rd event will follow in March of 2013 in Silicon Valley.

The Reinvent Law Laboratory’s mission is to cultivate the 4 pillars of innovation for the legal services: Law+Tech+Design+Delivery, and seeks to achieve its goal by hosting ReInvent Law “Un”Conferences around the globe. Dubai was chosen to host the 2nd edition of the event since it represents a central hub for entrepreneurship and innovation in the region as well as a geographic meeting point between Asia, East Asia and Europe according to Sammy.

The keynote speaker will be Hala Fadel of the MIT Enterprise Forum Arab Startup Competition. The event will also feature an array of speakers that willdiscuss a range of topics, including new markets for legal services and the challenges for innovation in law and technology including Mahmoud Abu-Wardeh from Zeedna.com, Christopher Grout from the Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre, Musthafa Zafeer from Musthafa & Almana, Daniel Martin Katz & Renee Newman Knake from the Michigan State University College of Law, and ArabNet Founder Omar Christidis.
