“What are the 12 hottest issues facing Legal Professionals?”


Leadership in the legal profession does not reflect the public it serves, even though women have entered law in numbers equal to men for decades.

Based upon her forthcoming book "Shortlisted: Women, Diversity, the Supreme Court & Beyond", Professor Knake shares surprising revelations about women shortlisted for the U.S. Supreme Court to inspire individuals and to aid organisations in bringing diversity to their leadership ranks.

Professor Renee Newman Knake is Professor of Law at the University of Houston Law Center, where she holds the Doherty Chair in Legal Ethics. She also holds the Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Entrepreneurship and Innovation at RMIT for 2019.


The legal industry of tomorrow will be significantly different to previous decades. The brightest and best future lawyers and clients see disruption as the norm and will continue to push back when faced with those unwilling to show similar agility.

As part of the Legal Festival, the Legal Forecast will present a curated stream on content designed to help attendees passionate about disruptive thinking and access to justice.

The TLF team will host a range of interactive sessions showcasing the brightest young lawyers and students from around Australia.
