Leading global law firm Baker McKenzie has announced it is to support Northern Ireland-based Ulster University's Legal Innovation Centre. The facility and the partnership itself will train and inspire the lawyers of the future and is the first of its kind in the UK.
Baker McKenzie will work closely with the new Centre on a range of research projects as well as support student’s education, tapping into the Firm’s own people and expertise. Based in the heart of Belfast but with a global reach, the Legal Innovation Centre will be at the forefront of advancing the use of technology-driven innovation in legal services and legal education globally.
Jason Marty, Executive Director of Baker McKenzie Belfast, said: “Terrific education at all levels was a deciding factor for us in choosing to locate in Belfast. This new center extends that strength and directly connects to the opportunities and challenges facing the law and the legal industry. We expect our partnership with the center to provide tangible impacts in how we build our teams, technologies, and business. We also look forward to contributing to the good work of the center on issues with direct benefit to the people and legal system of Northern Ireland and beyond.”
