Innovation and the Future of Law

The American Bar Association’s Law Practice Division provides a monthly webzine, Law Practice Today, covering the latest topics in law practice management.

January’s issue focuses on innovation, including new law firm models, what the future of law will look like, as well as the risks associated with technological innovation in the legal practice.

Here are some highlights from this issue:

  • Seeking the New Law Firm Model
    “How lawyers are finding new ways to deliver value to clients through innovations in the delivery of legal services.”
  • Hacking the Law 
    “While “hacking” conjures images of furtive attempts to breach computer networks, true hackers are creative, unconventional problem solvers. New groups of legal hackers are taking the ethic spawned by the earliest true hackers and applying it to improving the practice of law.”
  • Innovation in Legal Education
    “The traditional legal education curriculum no longer gives students the skills they need to compete in today’s rapidly changing legal profession. Some law schools are adding new, practical and innovative programs that will better position graduates (and their employers) to compete.”
  • The Risks of Innovation Through Technology in Legal Practice
    “Technology is a boon to innovation in the legal profession, but lawyers need to understand the ethical and business risks associated with their use of technology.”
