With a little bit of a delay, oops, via Legal Blog Watch, Robert J. Ambrogi writes about the keynote address by Richard Susskind, the legal technology consultant, adviser, author and Big Thinker, at the ABA Techshow in Chicago.
His talk was based on his new book, “The End of Lawyers? Rethinking the Nature of Legal Services,” which followed from his 1996 book, “The Future of Law.” His key point was that the delivery of legal services will see rapid and fundamental change — not that lawyers need to make it change, but that change will come and is coming despite us.
Robert Ambrogi gave a really concise summary of the address emphasizing the fundamental change within legal profession. It is worth reading. The full post is available here.
