"...the pace of change is accelerating. And great numbers of leaders across the legal profession are now openly acknowledging that the world of law is entering a period of transformation. In truth, we are just warming up...."

Richard Susskind, "Tomorrow's Lawyers: An Introduction to Your Future"


          The International Conference on the Future of Law and Legal Practice 2019 ("ICFLP") is the first Taylor's Law School's signature  conference exploring on the future developments of the law Malaysia, regionally and internationally. ICFLP 2019, with the theme - Law in the Midst of Change - provides a platform for legal practitioners and academicians to explore and share the development of legal issues on national, regional and international levels. Richard Susskind has been quoted saying "...the pace of change is accelerating. And great numbers of leaders across the legal profession are now openly acknowledging that the world of law is entering a period of transformation. In truth, we are just warming up..." Currently, there are significant changes that are taking place all around us which have been directly or indirectly impacting our lives in unexpected and, at times, unwelcome ways.
