The Law & Technology Initiative, a partnership between academic institutions and legal practices in the Manchester area, has developed a hybrid qualification combining law and technology aimed at filling the gap in skills that the next generation of legal professionals will likely benefit from.

Andrew James of Alliance Manchester Business School said: “We’re looking at a recognised standard for skills, a hybrid of legal and technology.” He also revealed that another three legal sector partners had joined the initiative.

A similar initiative has been set up by York Law School, Norton Rose Fulbright and Bryter.
