    Your compass for navigating and accelerating

    innovation in the law.


  • We knew before March 2020 that the legal landscape is changing. RADICALLY and RAPIDLY. The global impact of the COVID pandemic has simply ramped up the speed, exponentially.

    As we emerge from REACTIVE mode, those organizations and individuals who thrive will have one thing in common: a PROACTIVE, strategic approach to LEVERAGE CHANGE. With AGILITY and dynamism.

    Is your organization prepared to navigate the uncharted territory the legal profession — and clients — continue to face? Do you have practical tools in your toolbox to embrace and make change that creates value in this new landscape?

    For many, the answer to these questions continues to be a resounding NO. This is why we've created the NewLaw Accelerator, designed to fast-track training for rising leaders in legal innovation.

    The PoLI Institute at Vanderbilt Law's original mission was to create an immersive learning experience with a focused mission to provide a compass for navigating legal innovation. We do this by teaching both the theory and practical skills required to thrive in the evolving legal landscape. And connecting you directly to a cohort of legal professionals who are making real change happen across the legal industry.


    Announcing the NewLaw Accelerator!

    With the NewLawAcclerator program, we're focusing on fast-tracking training in the areas most fundamental to innovation in this liminal period, as we emerge from a global pandemic into whatever comes next. NewLaw Accelerator immersions will be offered virtually, with a combination of asynchronous work and synchronous facilitated, collaborative cohort sessions. Enrollment is limited to create conditions for synergy and dialogue among a max of 12 participants per session.


    About the PoLI Institute. The PoLI Institute represents a natural evolution of Vanderbilt Law's Program on Law and Innovation (PoLI), launched in 2015 under the leadership and vision of Dean Chris Guthrie. PoLI's mission is to equip Vanderbilt students with the modern skills and tools to navigate an ever-rapidly changing legal landscape — and position them to lead this change.


    With the NewLaw Accelerator at the PoLI Institute, we're expanding the scope of the PoLI curriculum and bringing it to practicing legal professionals.
