This short YouTube video from Bloomberg Law is an interview with Professor Richard Susskind which encapsulates much of the message from his recent book Tomorrow’s Lawyers.
The key message concerns the future of lawyers as much as law.
Richard Susskind emphasises that different skills will be needed, but
says both that these are skills which lawyers could (and by implication
should) acquire and that they offer career opportunities which are
potentially both challenging and remunerative.
If this video whets your appetite, Richard Susskind’s book is available here. He is a keynote speaker at the Information Governance and eDisclosure Summit in London on 14 to 16 May, for which seats can still be obtained.
