What’s the future of the DPU?

We hear about AI, document automation and collaboration platforms and lawyers working in their own documents. In a legal sector of more than 11,000 firms in England & Wales alone, the document production team really is a niche specialist role. Should we be worried about how our skills are valued or should we embrace whatever opportunities that technology can offer us?”
