The future of the IP legal profession: Balancing the rise of AI with human expertise

In the next three to five years, the legal space will likely look and operate differently than what intellectual property professionals experience today. The global workforce is experiencing significant shifts to keep pace with changing workplace expectations, increased retirement eligibility and evolving customer needs. Simultaneously, the artificial intelligence (AI) sector is forecasted to grow exponentially, creating new jobs that are unimaginable today.

These factors will likely result in an unavoidable reshaping of the way law firms and in-house councils currently work. What will this mean for the future of the IP legal profession?
