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!

Dean Evans delivers Blockchain for Law Professors Webinar for AALS Summer Series

AALS-webinar-screencapture

Tonya-SXSW-49190This session, Educating Law Professors about Blockchain, is intended to introduce you to the technology and terminology and to highlight some prominent and promising use cases in education, generally, and legal education in particular. And also, at a more fundamental level, to encourage you to consider the vital and essential role of technology in the classroom and curricula at every level of education.

There are two basic ways that we, as educators, must be prepared for this latest technological wave of innovation. The first is to educate ourselves so that we can empower our students. The second is to understand how the technology is poised to disrupt, disintermediate and transform the education industry in some really exciting ways.
