How can you actually make a positive impact on the legal profession?
Plenty of lawyers want to improve the way things are done. But honestly, very few people ever make a big dent on the status quo.
Peter Dombkins is a national leader in legal transformation, legal operations and the project management of legal professional services. Peter is someone who has driven significant improvements in the way the law is practised.

He is currently a Director at PwC NewLaw, Australia's first Adjunct Associate Professor in Legal Transformation, at the University of NSW Faculty of Law, the Vice-President of the Australian Society for Computers and the Law (NSW), and the managing editor of their journal.

Peter is also the first Legal Project Manager (LPM) to be peer-accredited as a Certified Practising Project Director. Safe to say, he has accomplished great things across many domains and continues to be at the forefront of important innovations in the legal industry.

In this episode we covered:

  • Peter's day-to-day work balancing Legal Project Management, Academia and Legal Operations
  • Peter's journey from Sydney Grammar to Project Management to Legal Practice, and then to Gilbert and Tobin and finally PwC NewLaw.
  • Why Project Management is so important for the legal industry and for individual lawyers (as well as their clients).
  • How to use your own unique experience and perspectives to catalyze positive change in the legal profession.
  • Why success for Peter is the evolution of the whole sector, not just a few individuals.
