Delivery of legal services is no longer a staid, hierarchical, monolithic model whose economics are misaligned with clients. It is a global marketplace where the future lawyer can collaborate, design, and deliver new products and services across na-tions and continents. It’s a time of great opportunity for future lawyers to bring millions of new customers into the market-place—for the benefit of all. As the lawyers of the future recreate the legal marketplace, they must zealously defend the rule of law. Its defense will be their most important matter, a constant reminder of what it means to be a lawyer and why the profession is so important to preserving the freedoms so many take for granted.
In this seminar, citing relevant examples from around the world, Mark provides an overview of the trends shaping the future of legal services and invites participants to think about what roles they will play in that future. How must legal education evolve to prepare law students and young lawyers for such roles? What are some strategies for young legal professionals to 'mind the gap' between what they have been taught and what they must learn in order to become the type of legal profes-sionals who are valued in future law? How can young legal professionals evolve from legal technicians into trusted advisors whom clients value? If you are a law student or a newly qualified legal professional, be a part of this candid session and deepen your understanding of how the legal profession-industry is transforming.
