The chief innovation officer position has varying duties based on a company’s or law firm’s needs, but CIOs say one of the position’s biggest roles is ensuring lawyers aren’t left behind in a technologically advancing and diversifying world.

The trio will discuss what their individual duties are and how they measure their role’s success in the hype-filled realm of “innovation.”
