PART 1: RADICAL CHANGES IN THE LEGAL MARKET; PART TWO: THE NEW LANDSCAPE; PART THREE: PROSPECTS FOR NEW LAWYERS
Richard Susskind OBE is an author, speaker, and independent adviser to international professional firms and national governments. He is President of the Society for Computers and Strategy and Technology Adviser to the Lord Chief Justice. He holds professorships at Oxford University, UCL, Strathclyde University, and Gresham College. His work has been translated into more than 10 languages, and he has been invited to speak in over 40 countries.
As Susskind has pointed out for more than 20 years now, technology is having a profound effect on the world around us. Lawyers who fail to acknowledge this fact and adapt accordingly will undoubtedly pay the price. Don't be one of those lawyers. Educate yourself about the changes, their impact, and then do everything you can to adjust course. If you feel overwhelmed by the prospect and aren't sure how to go about it, never fear, I've got some advice for you: buy this book. It's a great place to start. * Nicole Black, Law Technology Today *
