About the 2018 Dinner


Innovation and the Future of Work: Technology, Talent, and Organizational Change in the Legal Profession

 

Each year, the Center on the Legal Profession brings together members of the legal community to honor those whose achievements have contributed to building a stronger legal profession.  The Center's empirical research forms the heart of our dinners - research that underpins the event's content and is central to the lives of the honorees.

At this year's dinner, we will offer an introduction to the Center on the Legal Profession and release results from our path-breaking research into how law firms and in-house legal departments operationalize innovation.

We will also present awards to pioneering innovators in the legal profession:

 

Award for Global Leadership

Katherine Adams, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Apple Inc.

 

Award for Professional Excellence

Mark Harris, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, Axiom Global, Inc.

Kim Rivera, Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel, HP Inc.
