Legal Innovation

In this seminar, we will consider a number of key innovations in the legal services space. Through focused readings, case studies, and some expert outside speakers, we will consider various critical initiatives underway or being planned, initiatives that will impact in meaningful ways the delivery of legal services ¿ or, indeed, how we even define what are or are not ¿legal services.¿ The aim is threefold: First, to survey some of the most interesting recent developments in the legal services space; second, to critically examine the circumstances and market conditions that have yielded these (and often quite radical) new experiments; and, finally, to look closely at how law and legal practice is being reshaped in a world of major technological, social, and economic change and of global impact.
