 What the Future of the Legal Profession (Really) Holds


There is no shortage of speculation about the future of the legal profession. Some may be correct and important. Much is likely false. The legal profession has undergone radical transformation before. In the 1990s, the internet drove transition to PCs and practice management systems and everything else digitally-driven. The incumbent law firms did not collapse - they adapted and thrived. Today's challenges are different but a similar outcome is likely. Join this session to critically evaluate the future practice and business of law.

· Evaluate forecasts about the future of the practice and the business of law
· Determine what other law firms are doing in response to these challenges and emulate as appropriate
· Analyze how emerging technology is likely to transform the practice of attorneys
