State of Legal Innovation in Asia Pacific Report
Updated: Apr 9, 2019
The Singapore Management University (“SMU”) Law School and FLIP established an academic
partnership in 2018 to collaborate on research and education in “future law”. Under the
agreement with the Singapore Academy of Law (“SAL”), SMU and will collaborate with FLIP
on several fronts, including student and curriculum development, thought leadership, as well
as case studies and research. In particular, SMU School of Law will co-host dialogues and
seminars with SAL, develop thought leadership through case studies and research on future
law topics, and explore the possibility of curating modular executive education programmes to support leadership and/or legal innovation for FLIP participants.
This report is the latest product of our academic partnership and built upon the inaugural Legal Hackers APAC Summit held in SMU and co-organised by FLIP last year.
Just as innovation is an iterative process, we plan to continually update and grow the report to establish it as an authoritative industry reference/compendium on legal innovation in the Asia Pacific to be published on a regular basis by SMU-FLIP.
We would like express our profound gratitude to all countries and law firms who have
supported this pioneering effort and to our Chief Editor, Mr Jerrold Soh, Lecturer at the SMU
School of Law for shepherding the entire process!
