Whether we like it or not, the legal marketplace is changing.  

Once known as a professional calling, lawyers in firms of all sizes are now being faced with the application of business principles in order to just maintain pace.  

Clients are demanding better, faster, and cheaper legal services, and they have begun to look to non-traditional legal service providers to meet their needs.  

To know how to respond to these challenges, lawyers should be aware of what led to them and how structural changes in the practice of law can alter—for good or ill—the future of the practice.

  • Hear from a distinguished panel of law school deans and educators about how they see law school curricula and the training of lawyers changing in response to globalization, the flattening technological universe, and the entry of non-traditional legal service providers into the legal marketplace
  • Discover what our clients really want—what drives them and how to be the lawyers they hire and keep
