The End of Lawyers
I just ordered a book called the End of Lawyers. I don't think the premise is really that lawyers will stop existing as a profession but I do think lawyers will need to take a hard look at the practice model we have developed. Change is inevitable and every profession needs to reconsider the way things are done. Given the technological advances experienced by nearly every segment of civil society and the changes in business practices, how are we as lawyers prepared to move forward and what types of services will the public, our clients, both demand and need?
The book's premise appears to me to focus on changes in the way we practice law, changes in the services delivered and changes in the way clients view the services they want from us.
I look forward to reading the book!
