Mary O’Carroll Interview TechLaw.Fest


Reading Time: < 1 minute

Despite its increasing prominence, legal operations still remains a relatively recent idea in the legal industry in this part of the world. Most lawyers may have an inkling of what it entails, but may struggle to put it down in words. In the most concise and compelling way, what is “legal operations” to CLOC, and why is it such an important element of the modern legal industry? On a separate but related note, what sort of knock-on effects will it have on legal education and training?

LawTech.Asia received the exclusive opportunity to interview Mary Shen O’Carroll, President of CLOC and Director of Legal Operations, Technology, and Strategy for Google. Mary will be kicking off TLF as a speaker in the first Leaders Fireside Chat: Skills at Scale and the Legal Function. In this interview, you’ll receive a look into these questions and more.
