What the team does
The Digital Information and Legal Systematics team (DILST) plans and develops the knowledge and information resources strategy for the firm with a focus on innovation and digital approaches. It's actually made up of two teams: our Strategic Development team and our Information & Library Services (ILS) team.
The Strategic Development team is focused on market awareness, the requirements of our legal teams and moving our digital strategy to the next stage. We lead focus groups across our firm, so that our legal and business services teams can adopt the most innovative strategies. In the Legal Week Awards, we were highly commended for our innovation in knowledge management.
Our ILS team is responsible for our research strategy. It makes sure our people have access to cost effective, cutting edge legal and business research resources and tools, to help them support clients in the best possible way. As part of this, we manage one-stop Knowledge Centre portals for legal practice and sector teams, giving them easy access to the right information and research materials.
DILST's work underpins much of the advice our people give to our clients. It contributes to how our business and client relationship teams enhance our client base. In short, it's key to delivering great legal services, and is vital to our business.
