WOW WOW WOW. I got to meet TWO of my favourite authors (at the same time!) this weekend at the 'Crime Festival' in Harrogate, Yorkshire where the witty & hugely talented writer of the Jack Reacher series, Lee Child, interviewed the best legal thriller author on the planet, John Grisham. I also managed to get two books signed (those in the pic), a handshake and a smile from Grisham himself, in person! Sooooooo tickled pink. Pinching myself and still smiling 😊



Albeit I haven't written a Naked Lawyer (or Robot Lawyer) fictional thriller (yet), I have some fantastic news regarding my business and lifestyle book, "Tomorrow's Naked Lawyer"...

Last month I travelled to Berlin & Zurich. There was a fantastic reception by delegates and hosts in both Germany and Switzerland ...


Opening with the "Robots, AI and the digitalization of the Legal Ecosystem: 2018 to 2030" keynote at the Legal Transformation Days 2018, Annual Conference, Berlin, Germany, followed up by the "Emotionally Intelligent Lawyers with Artificially Intelligent Machines – Better Together!"

Be sure to check out the videos from Legal Transformation days 2018!


2018 The Mischief World Tour UPDATE... Up & Coming stuff


The Naked Lawyer's (and Robot Lawyer LISA’s) year is hotting up! Events, speaking engagements, interviews and meetings are now poised in August, September and October for Brazil, Singapore, Australia (Perth and Sydney), Hong-Kong, Finland and Amsterdam - it’s incredibly exciting!

September will be a HUGE month, ending with my travelling to the Nordic Business Forum, Helsinki, to not only deliver a keynote to one of the top law firms in the Nordics, but also having the honour of interviewing one of the leading pioneers and thinkers on the Digital Economy, Andrew McAfee - Co-Founder of the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy -  before he goes on stage to deliver his own speech on the topic of "How AI Changes the Way Companies Perform."


The NBF event will also see former president, Barack Obama speaking!


Be sure to check out in more detail all of the fabulous EVENTS I'm involved in HERE


Speaking of fabulous ...
HUGE SHOUT-OUT to: 1) the amazing (fabulous) Terri Mottershead, Director of CLI (Centre for Legal Innovation) in Queensland, Australia, who moved mountains to make my pending trip downunder an eventful and fun-packed agenda and itinerary! Can't wait to visit Perth and Sydney. Do take a peek at Terri's great work at the CLI :)

2) the awesome (fabulous) Mark Cohen who is planning to be in London, UK, during 10-17 October. I'll be catching up with my good friend at some point during that period but won't be hogging him for the entire time ergo feel free to contact him direct should you wish to engage him. You won't regret it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

As always, reach out and let me know if you'd like me to come and speak at your event / consult with you / your company in Q4 this year or next. I'm already taking bookings for 2019 so be sure to lock-in a date asap ;)

Ping me an email here :)




As mentioned in the previous newsletter, Robot Lawyer LISA, the world's first impartial AI Lawyer, will be accompanying The Naked Lawyer during the Mischief Tour. Delighted (and chuffed to bits for the Team at LISA HQ and all of her users) to share the news that LISA was highlighted and mentioned this month in a great article called "Law Firms Climb Aboard The AI Wagon" in The Economist magazine.


Check it out in The Economist HERE.



It was also super to see last month the informative and helpful consumer and business website, Law Plain And Simple, began to host LISA’s NDA AI Contract tool together with an informative article about NDAs.


Wonderful to see even greater interest and take-up by users of the free NDA service via this useful portal.


Check it out here...





There's been a whole flurry of positive activity in law law land recently.  ...


First and foremost, The Centre for Ethics & Laws at University College London is to hold an independent review into the regulatory framework for legal services. It will be led by Professor Stephen Mayson, absolutely the TOP professional and undoubtedly the very best person for the task. Read all about it HERE and HERE...






There's also been major movement by The Law Society of England & Wales as it announced last month it was seeking someone with strong LawTech credentials to take up a new Policy Advisor role.


The Law Society of England and Wales also has a strong interest in the impact of technology and data use on human rights.


To help the Law Society understand this very broad issue, they will be examining one specific aspect: the use of algorithms in the justice system.


The Law Society’s new Public Policy Technology and Law Commission will examine the use of algorithms in the justice system in England and Wales and what controls, if any, are needed to protect human rights and trust in the justice system.

The commissioners at the Law Society will be taking evidence from a range of experts on whether algorithms and their use within the justice system should be regulated, and if so, how.


The Law Society is calling for written evidence from all interested parties (including experts) on the topic of algorithms in the justice system.


They are looking to hear from practitioners, academics, tech professionals, civil liberties organisations, companies that make algorithms, public bodies that use them, and anyone who has an interest in technology, the rule of law and human rights.


If you are interested in giving evidence, check out this webpage and fill in the form


Oh btw, the first 'in person' gathering is 25th July ergo you'll need to get your skates on if you'd like to attend that inaugural session! :)


There's also a really cool FREE event by NetDocuments for lawyers / law firms in September hosted by The Law Society in London. Check out the video and register for the event here:

Whether you're a lay person, business person or lawyer, be sure to check out other up and coming Events at The Law Society as there's a whole bunch of interesting stuff for us all.




I'm absolutely thrilled to announce that my company, EntrepreneurLawyer Ltd, is Winner of AI Leading Adviser Awards 2018 - Leading Sales and Legal Coach of the Year! 


THANK-YOU ALL for your unwavering encouragement and support as we journey through these challenging times together :):):)


Hope to keep in touch or see you on the road sometime soon! :) ...


Let's keep Dancing, ROARing and Prrrrrrrrrrrrring throughout 2018 and beyond ...

Warmest regards and best intentions as ever,


The Entrepreneur Lawyer
