Liquid Intelligent Technologies joins hands with Africa Legal in an ed-tech partnership to drive professional growth in Africa through Liquid Labs
Liquid Labs aspires to make relevant tech training programmes accessible to students and professionals
Our aim is to empower and encourage professionals and students in both sectors and to help them leverage these opportunities
Leading pan-African technology group Liquid Intelligent Technologies (www.Liquid.Tech), through its innovation and partnerships arm Liquid Labs, is launching three online courses on legal technology, targeted at supporting career development amongst students, budding entrepreneurs, and lawyers. This has been possible through a partnership with Africa Legal, an organisation that connects legal professionals across the African continent.
Liquid Labs aspires to make relevant tech training programmes accessible to students and professionals to bridge the affordability and digital divide, the main deterrents to increased access. The courses will offer targeted training for lawyers and the business community to enable working people to upskill and embrace the opportunities of the digital world.
According to Ben Roberts, the Group Chief Technology, and Innovation Officer at Liquid Intelligent Technologies, "New technologies are challenging the way Africans do things in their everyday lives. For instance, innovations like blockchain deliver smart contracts using digital tech platforms. The advancement of such innovation means that the fourth industrial revolution will create challenges and opportunities at the intersection of law and tech. We’ve partnered with Africa Legal on these courses to better equip lawyers through technology, and support technologists to engage with the law. Our aim is to empower and encourage professionals and students in both sectors and to help them leverage these opportunities."
The courses on offer are:
- Leveraging off Legal Technology to Grow Your Firm - This course encourages students to conduct their business in a way that leverages the inherent benefits of legal technology
- Change Management for Lawyers - This course provides the learner with critical change management perspectives relevant to any area of development within their business.
- Fundamentals of Business Law for Entrepreneurs - This course is designed for emerging entrepreneurs. It provides the platform of legal knowledge required to begin to grow a business from initial start-up to becoming investment ready and will share some insight into what to look for when partnering with a law firm that will be a valuable ally in growing your business
Africa Legal’s Chief Executive, Scott Cowan, said he was delighted by the partnership which was in line with the platform’s vision of building networks, reinforcing pan-African relationships in the legal community, and building capacity.
“This is just the beginning of an exciting journey and we look forward to offering so much more to our Africa Legal community by way of news, job opportunities and education,” he said.
The courses have been formulated with the vision to augment digital transformation across the continent and provide the right know-how needed for budding entrepreneurs to successfully and efficiently operate in their businesses. These courses from Liquid Labs and Africa Legal will deliver practical knowledge and understanding that will focus on developing critical-thinking skills for students by presenting real-life scenarios, conflicts and solutions in order for them to master the lawyer-based thinking approach in life and their professional paths ahead.
The courses will launch on 4 November 2021; students can now pre-register at: https://bit.ly/3ltJ99N.
