Liquid Legal II – Towards a Common Legal Platform

Liquid Legal II

The first Liquid Legal book compelled the legal profession to reassess its identity and to aspire to become a strategic partner for corporate executives and clients. It also led to the foundation of the Liquid Legal Institute (LLI). This is an association that sparks innovation and drives collaboration in the legal industry.  ‘Towards a Common Legal Platform’ is the LLI’s second Liquid Legal book.
