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?

SPOTLIGHT: Tech Intersect #70: Andre Oshea-G.R.O.W.ing your NFT Art Business on the Blockchain Tech Intersect™ with Tonya M. Evans

While I am taking a much-needed pause to recuperate from the academic year that was also a pandemic (and grade these papers and exams!), I want to share one of the most popular and timely episodes this year; my conversation with the inimitable Andre Oshea. He is self-described as a 3D animator building the future. That is all true. But he is so much more. He's a visionary, an advocate, an activist and someone who always lifts as he climbs. Translation? He's a real one. And one of my favorite artists and humans in the creative NFT space and beyond. Learn more about NFT Art + copyright: NFTLawGuide.comSPONSORED BY ADVANTAGE EVANS™ ACADEMY Got goals?
