Welcome to this month’s Legal Innovation Briefing, a selection of insights and updates curated for in-house legal teams.

Imagine a tool that can aggregate comparative terms and conditions within industries so that you can quickly choose goods and services on the basis of terms that work best for you personally.

Given the issue with very few people actually reading terms and conditions, this sounds like a brilliant tool to us! It was one of the many solutions that came out of the recent Global Legal Hackathon.

With 6,000 people from 24 countries participating, it is clear that there is great interest in improving the legal industry through innovation and the better use of people, process and technology.

One of the judges for the Melbourne chapter of the event was Anna Lozynski, Executive General Counsel at L'Oréal Australia and New Zealand. Anna presented at the New Zealand launch of the Chief Innovation Officers Forum that we hosted this week - her key points on innovation for legal teams are below.

The Big Idea: Partnerships, user experience and data crucial to legal innovation

Anna Lozynski is a leading light in the legal innovation space. What she and the legal team at L'Oréal Australia and New Zealand has achieved during their innovation journey over the past few years is incredible.

By working in partnership with law firms, technology providers and internal stakeholders, the legal team has re-engineered their services and created 13 apps that are designed specifically for the end-user and which make it easy for the team to access real-time data on what they’ve got on and status. The apps have resulted in significant benefits for the legal team and the wider business and it is an inspiring story of what is possible with the right mind-set and gumption.
