Did You Know?

I recently held an Away Day with my team and I wanted to illustrate the factors that are facing the future of work, the future of education and the future of law.

Having read countless reports, books, blogs etc I decided to build a picture using the salient facts and inspired by a number of videos on Youtube set about compiling the following:
I'm often dismayed that so many aspects of legal education are not engaging in how the world is evolving and changing, there is so much possibility and it is integral that we provide skills that will outlast the current models, because the students of today are going to work in completely different environments so we can't use the tools of yesterday to teach for the future.
I'm reminded that when I was at University, the internet had only just been invented and look how it's progressed and how pervasive it has become.

Starting Out

After 3 years of anonymously blogging my thoughts, rants and observations as a diary for stand-up comedy routines, I've decided to starting blogging in my professional context which is a far cry from the personal blogging.

Why do this? Well as a major consumer of professional blogs it only seems right to put my toe in the water, but also because I want to have those moments of reflection and contextualisation which blogging affords.

Why adventures in media, learning, technology and law? Well these are the spheres I occupy in my role and affect my everyday musings and duties.

I'm not an academic, techie, luvvie or legal eagle. Just someone dedicated and passionate about each of the areas this blog hopes to cover.
