Disrupting the Delivery of Legal Services and the Law Business: What Every Lawyer Needs to Know About New Legal and Law-Related Service Providers

Disrupting the Delivery of Legal Services and the Law Business: What Every Lawyer Needs to Know About New Legal and Law-Related Service Providers

January 14, 2016

The business of law is currently undergoing the greatest transformation that it has seen in decades. Rapid technological, economic, and regulatory changes are rippling through the legal profession so quickly that even naming the new industry models is difficult. From Avvo to Axiom, corporate and individual clients are being presented with new options for obtaining legal services, some of which come from lawyers working for nonlawyers, and some of which come from non-lawyer businesses or even software programs. Join us for a survey of what's going on in the marketplace, a review of the new business models of some of the more interesting players, an evaluation of how these new players and business models fit within (or outside) the current model of lawyer regulation, and a discussion of how regulators and the profession should respond.
