Hi, please introduce yourself to our readers! What’s your name and your job in the legal tech scenario?
Hi, I’m Marisa Monteiro Borsboom, lawyer and legal tech trainer, and advisor
Why do you think that innovation and technology are essential in the legal sector?
I think that innovation is as vital as in any other sector to adapt to the Digitech revolution. It is a matter of imperative adaptation.
You are Ambassador/Director at ELTA. Why should one join a legal tech association?
I am an ambassador for Portugal and a board member. For me joining the European community was also the guaranty I would be updated with the progress of the sector itself
Give our readers a quick picture of legal tech in your country. Let’s start from this: is the legal system aligned with the level of innovation of the country’s economic, social and cultural contexts?
In Portugal, the legal tech ecosystem is still in development and is trying to get aligned with the progress occurring in other sectors, but we have a long way to go, even in the awareness department
