THE LEGAL 500 > EVENTS > GC SUMMIT SWITZERLAND
Date: Thursday 28 September 2017
Venue: Baur au Lac Hotel, Talstrasse 1, Zurich
The Legal 500 and GC Magazine invite you to our next GC Summit Switzerland in association with Prager Dreifuss.
We will have a keynote address from Dr. Daniel Susskind followed by a panel discussion with a number of leading Swiss general counsel.
Daniel Susskind, fellow in economics at Balliol College Oxford
Dr. Susskind is a fellow in economics at Balliol College Oxford and the co-author with Professor Richard Susskind of The Future of the Professions, which sets out a radical vision for the future of the legal profession.
The Susskinds see two possible futures for professionals. Both rest in technology. One is a more efficient version of what we have today, with professionals using technology to streamline and optimize their traditional work processes. The second is a very different proposition, one that implies a gradual replacement of professionals by increasingly capable systems.
In a society, which will be increasingly internet-focused and reliant on cognitive computing to undertake many repetitive tasks what will this mean for the future of work? What will it mean for the future of our work as lawyers?
The event will be held at Baur au Lac Hotel, Talstrasse 1, Zurich and will start at 5.30pm.
