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.

Lawyers won’t go away, but the way that lawyers are interacting with business people, and in terms of our advice and how we work with them is going to certainly change!

Tech Intersect #64: Andre Oshea-G.R.O.W.ing your NFT Art Business on the Blockchain Tech Intersect™ with Tonya M. Evans

In this episode, I welcome artist extraordinaire, Andre Oshea to the show to talk about the business & marketing secrets of success in the non-fungible token art space, especially given his recent five figure sale of a collab with Grammy award winning music producer, Illmind, on a series of four pieces (two animated, two still), collectively titled G.R.O.W., an acronym  for give, respect, own and WIN). Andre’s body of work is futuristic, ethereal, multidimensional, and thought-provoking. He is a 3D generalist and animator who hails from Georgia. And he’s worked on several compelling projects with a wide range of clients including Adult Swim, Snapchat, Tidal, and John Legend and in this episode he talks about another amazing project he has been commissioned to participate in with Netflix. He is a bright light in the art world and beyond and I know you will enjoy this conversation as much as I enjoyed having it.

Maybe you, like Bruce Willis, think you own your iTunes library … think again!

Today in my first year Property class I plan to discuss how possession of some “thing” is evidence of ownership but possession does not equal ownership in all cases. Possession creates a rebuttable presumption. And Apple’s fine print may just win over an individual’s claims to own music purchased via iTunes. Is that a license or a transfer of title to the music? That’s what Bruce Willis wants to know. Maybe you do too!

A lawfully acquired physical copy, of course, is treated differently. But electronic goods pose challenging questions in the 21st century to what constitutes “ownership” of a lawfully acquired electronic file. Willis’s fight against Apple to pass on ownership of his music collection to his children is case-in-point:

“Bruce Willis has vanquished terrorists, basement rapists and the defenses of Cybill Shepherd. But in his three decades in Hollywood he may not have faced as daunting an opponent as Apple. According to an unconfirmed report in a British publication, Willis wants to bequeath his extensive iTunes music collection to his daughters — something that’s not permitted under the current iTunes terms.”

“Starting next week, we will begin taking into account a new signal in our rankings: the number of valid copyright removal notices we receive for any given site,” said Google SVP of engineering Amit Singhal in a blog post. He went on to say, “Sites with high numbers of removal notices may appear lower in our results.”

Perhaps the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and its safe harbor provisions are impacting Google’s policies in more ways than believed possible early on given the company’s previous stance on access to copyrighted information.
