Jonas Saladžius, Managing Partner of Eversheds Sutherland in Lithuania:

LegalTech LLM programme is a new approach towards legal studies. Technology enabled legal services are in the nascent markets yet. The global law firms, however, are rapidly adopting the strategic approach by investing in some distinct areas such as blockchain, big data legal analytics, robo-advice bots, automated review of contracts. Eversheds Sutherland global strategy employs a transformative change on how technologies are used in providing better quality of legal services. Technologies will transform the legal industry and the way law firms operate, and this programme is a unique opportunity for law students to remain highly competitive in the transforming legal market, says Jonas Saladzius.
