Some key takeaways from @lhammondsoas on Day 1 of @GCRF @UKRI_News #GCRFAddis
1️⃣ Vulnerability is rooted in multiple inequalities
2️⃣ Vulnerabilities shift and change over time
3️⃣ Migration is important mechanism for coping with vulnerability
4️⃣ Policy can increase vulnerability
First #GCRFAddis panel on youth, gender and remittances. Interesting findings from @REFHorn on complex and variable ways in which youth training programmes in Uganda influence migration decisions including whether to return to S Sudan, move within country, migrate internationally
Context is everything in designing youth employment programmes. Fascinating example from @neelamraina on ways Kashmiri culture and identity shape hopes/aspirations of young people for the future. If difference makes you who you are then programmes should build on this #GCRFAddis

A #data informed look at how the #human experience of #lawyering has changed over time.

Just as #clients need better #value propositions, #law firms need better business models. Meaningful #legal #transformation will occur where the two intersect.

H/T to @augierakow @robsaccone for the post #inspirelegal 🤓 email chain that #inspired this tweetable.

(Bc I’m a tweetable factory. 🤷🏻‍♀️)
Another reaction to this @wihender post: we NEED to deal with #automation anxiety in #legal.

Legacy models of law practice aren’t built for the pace of #business and volume of #information of the #digital age.

More #hours from more #lawyers can’t be the default answer.
