With dramatic increases in technology, widespread concern about costs and growing possibilities to outsource work, the structure and functions of litigation departments is being challenged as never before. How should departments be structured now to provide the same quality of advice but take advantage of the opportunities offered by technology, outsourcing and other tools. What problems arise in practice with these new ideas? How can common and civil law jurisdictions learn from each other in grappling with the need to improve efficiency?

This will be a practical workshop designed to appeal to litigators from all jurisdictions who wish to enhance the competitiveness and efficiency of their firms. The latest technologies and techniques will be introduced and ideas and practical experience will be exchanged.
