We all know the legal profession could be better. For colleagues, clients and the public. But innovation in the law? That’s not possible, is it? You’d have to quit your job and found a legal-tech company or invest a boatload of cash into a fancy app. Right?

Not at all. What you really need is a workable idea, coupled with a curiosity to rethink long-held traditions.

At least, that’s what the winners of our inaugural Precedent Innovation Awards have in common. Through clever tweaks to the profession, they have improved the workplace, reduced costs and increased access to justice. Click on the stories below to see how these working lawyers are solving some of law’s biggest problems. You’ll be surprised by the progress we’ve made.
