COVID-19 has triggered a dramatic transformation of traditional professional industry practices, but according to Plexus associate commercial director Sam Burrett, this could inadvertently create a better future for those operating in the legal sphere.

Sam joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show to unpack the key trends that have been accelerated as a result of the pandemic, how vocational paths for lawyers have evolved over the last decade, and the kinds of new opportunities and work practices that are now emerging.


Sam shares some practical tips for legal professionals to find out about such pathways, outlines the meaning of the term “legalpreneur”, and conveys his predictions about the legal landscape in a post-pandemic world.
