Will legal ed and the practice of law pivot to meet the #neweconomy & #futureofwork?

“Lawyers aren’t going away. But the way we work is changing.”

Today’s client and, more importantly tomorrow’s client, demands that lawyers keep pace with the #futureofwork in the #neweconomy. Here’s where I think we are and where we HAVE to go.

How do you foresee this directly impacting the legal industry?

Asked by interviewer Adam Keirstead

Dean Evans

Well, there’s a really interesting move in the legal industry to prepare lawyers to have conversations with technologists in the IT department and those who are coding to leverage the existing master contracts that we have in order to figure out ways that we can automate certain functions.

Essentially, there are master agreements underneath that lawyers do, and there’s coding the coders and IT specialists do. They need to be able to talk to each other. This is an area that’s ripe for innovation on the law side.

Tech Intersect #116-SPOTLIGHT Ep. 61: Ping The Prof 3-What Every NFT Creative Collector Should Know About IP Tech Intersect™ with Tonya M. Evans

In this episode of Tech Intersect (originally aired on March 23, 2021), I did a third topic-specific episode to address all of the questions about intellectual property and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) I'd received. This episode is especially important (and one of the most popular) because I confronted a lot of misinformation from social media and shared some IP basics to help creatives and collectors make sense of it all. And to help you steer clear of the noise. For example, a telltale sign that you’re about to get bad legal advice? It usually begins with “I’m not a (an IP) lawyer but …”. In this episode, I explain the different types of IP, take a closer look at copyright and fair use, and what rights creatives transfer and what buyers acquire in an NFT sale?
