Amir S. Dhillon - LLM 2014

Could you tell us more about your involvement in LawWithoutWalls, a collaborative programme which finds innovative solutions to problems at the intersection of law and technology?

Our business plan was to match junior and senior lawyers to work on child trafficking cases; allowing junior lawyers to gain work experience, senior lawyers to fulfil their pro bono requirements – all whilst providing a vital public service. 

How did LawWithoutWalls develop your skills? 

LawWithoutWalls introduced me to the waves of disruption shaking the legal industry: reforming legal education, technological prowess and a business-minded approach to the traditionally static legal world. Learning to solve complex problems, adopting an entrepreneurial approach, writing a business plan and pitching to a panel of investors and legal/business leaders were instrumental to my growth.

What have you gone on to do since graduating? 

My current job is at Axiom, the world’s leading alternative legal services and technology provider. I work with senior managers on UK Marketing, Branding & PR strategy and take responsibility for its execution. I’m trusted with the huge responsibility of communicating Axiom’s message that legal work can be done in a smarter, faster, tech-enabled way. I love that I have an integral role in the phrasing and voice of the largest, most effective disruptor the legal industry has ever seen.
