COHERENCE - 1st International Multidisciplinary Law Conference 2015

Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad is going to organize the 1st International Multidisciplinary Law Conference 2015.

Date: 9th - 10th October, 2015
Venue: Auditorium of Symbiosis Law School, Hyderabad

Background Note:
Multidisciplinary practices (MDP) have been a subject of acrimonious debate between two opposing campaigns, each citing passionate reasons for why it should be formally established or defi-nitively barred. In the Law discipline, Multidisciplinary practice refers to a professional entity in which lawyers partner with non-lawyers to provide a mix of legal and non-legal services. Efficiency and innovation by this new structure is stifled with fears of conflicts of interest and dilution of privilege.

With an MDP, clients shall save on information and transactional costs, which in turn may save billable hours by the service providers. MDP not only increases efficiency but also, may increase competency and quality of work, because problems in today's world are not entirely "legal" or "business" problems, but a stifling amalgamation of both. MDPs' combination perspective may address problems that clients previously did not know existed. Diverse professionals working together in unity create new and innovative solutions and are more competitive in offering legal solutions than the traditional -firm in terms of price and quality.

The positivity of MDP is its judicious integration. Legal scholars, globally foresee a trend that non-lawyers and MDPs will become competitive against the traditional lawyer, running the risk of marginalizing practicing lawyers. Large accounting - firms have aggressively invaded the legal market and profession in some countries. While some countries are banning MDP due to its dilution of privilege specially in the legal domain, the proponents are propagating its need to have a better society with well resolved problems. Many observers state pragmatically that for all intents and purposes, the MDP revolution has already arrived in relation to corporate practice.
