In his newest provocative and forward-looking volume on the legal profession, Richard Susskind-the best-selling author of The End of Lawyers? and The Future of Law-predicts fundamental and irreversible changes in the world of law. What Susskind sees is eye-opening-a legal world of virtual courts, Internet-based global legal businesses, online document production, commoditized service, legal process outsourcing, and web-based simulated practice. Legal markets will be liberalized, with new jobs for lawyers and new employers too.

Tomorrow's Lawyers is a definitive guide to this future--for young and aspiring lawyers, and for all who want to modernize our legal and justice systems. It introduces the new legal landscape and offers practical guidance for those who intend to build careers and businesses in law. Susskind identifies the key drivers of change, such as the economic downturn, and considers how these will shape the legal marketplace. He then sketches out the new legal landscape as he envisions it, highlighting the changing role of law firms-and in-house lawyers-and the coming of virtual hearings and online dispute resolution. He also suggests solutions to major concerns within the legal profession, such as diminishing public funding, and explores alternative roles for future lawyers in a world increasingly dominated by It. And what are the prospects for aspiring lawyers? Susskind predicts what new jobs and new employers there will be, equipping prospective lawyers with penetrating questions to put to their current and future bosses.

Tomorrow's Lawyers is an essential roadmap to the future of law for those who want to survive the rapidly changing legal landscape.

This is a book that should be read by all lawyers, judges and academics, but above all by students of law, for it is their future about which he writes an intensely stimulating book that is well worth careful study. Sir Philip Bailhache, The Jersey & Guernsey Law Review This concise book is a compelling glimpse into the near-future of legal services, and provides invaluable information for tomorrow's lawyers. Colman Candy, Irish Times Susskind has a knack for taking complex and complicated issues and making them simple and easy to understand. He has a clear message for in-house lawyers: the legal world is changing; law firms are changing; and law departments must change as well. This book is worth reading - it will make you think. And, hopefully help you prepare for the future. After all, law departments must adapt to the changes going on around us. Fred Krebs, Canadian Lawyer Magazine Tomorrows Lawyers is a worthwhile read for anyone involved in legal services and education, particularly if you have not read Susskind's previous books. Joanna Goodman, The Law Society Gazette Far and away the best analyst and predictor of the evolution of the legal marketplace is Richard Susskind, the U.K.-based academic and futurist. If you're in any kind of management or leadership role in law (or you just care about your own career), I would say it's a prerequisite to read Tomorrow's Lawyers. Paul Lippe, ABA Journal

5.0 von 5 Sternen The new legal paradigm.... 12. Mai 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Länge: 0:35 Minuten

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Richard Susskind has done it again with a very modern approach to what is the age-old issue of how the legal profession will evolve in the next decade. He did it before with “The End of Lawyers?” which we reviewed favourably at the time and which has achieved substantial critical acclaim for its thoughtful submissions.

Many of Susskind’s readers now will probably be looking at their roles in the profession afresh but from the wrong side of the career time line. However, the view is worth looking at for what he offers up is most thought-provoking and, yes, he can anticipate a lot of what is about to happen.

In many ways this is a serious strategy book. It peers into the future with a most interesting Part Three on ‘Prospects for Young Lawyers’ which is probably the biggest readership area for the book.

The question really is- should I bother to become a lawyer? Well, yes! It’s a tough profession and Susskind suggests that the role of the conventional lawyer may not be as prominent in future- it will be interesting to see if history bears this out or not. We don’t agree with him on that unless we see a little less law-making which is highly doubtful.

When one door closes another opens is a serious quote from Bell at the beginning of this book and it sums up the predicament we are all in. Susskind deals not only with the changing landscape of law, but the changing attitudes of the personalities, especially on the bench, and the sea change which is modern IT.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good for what it is 4. Juli 2013
Von Michael Lewyn - Veröffentlicht auf
This book predicts that the UK and the US will need fewer lawyers, because much work that has historically been done by lawyers (especially younger, less-skilled lawyers) can be done by computers, paralegals or someone working cheaply out of a non-First-World office. To the extent that lawyers will find new jobs in large numbers, they will do so not by using traditional legal skills than by organizing the paralegals and computers.

I don't consider myself enough of an expert either to intelligently agree or intelligently disagree with Susskind's views. I do think, however, that Susskind's book is concise and readable- so if you want to read a statement of Susskind's point of view, his book is worth reading.

However, it does seem to me that Susskind overestimates the ability of laypersons to resolve legal issues without hiring lawyers. He seems to think that a moderately educated layperson can avoid a lawyer by searching the Internet. But when my parents or other relatives ask me to do a little legal research, I often find that only the simplest issues can be resolved without the assistance of a specialist.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Look in a Rear View Mirror 5. Mai 2013
Von Robert Steiert - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this book hoping it would benefit my son who just completed his second year of law school. I found that instead of predicting the future, Susskind has described the present and the past. For example, he states, "First of all, even before parties assemble in court, there is one technique that can be of immediate benefit -- e-filing." This has been required practice for many years in courts where I practiced. Maybe there are some nuggets of insight near the end of the book. I gave up after 100 pages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Change is coming, ready or not 18. Oktober 2013
Von John Gibbs - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Tomorrow's legal world bears little resemblance to that of the past, according to Richard Susskind in this book. The next two decades will bring more changes to legal institutions and lawyers than have the last two centuries. While traditional job opportunities for young lawyers are diminishing, a whole range of exciting new legal occupations will soon be created.

First, the bad news. The changes in the legal profession coinciding with the global recession are here to stay. Even if and when the global economy recovers, the three main drivers of change will not be going away:

* The "more for less" challenge, in which companies have been putting pressure on their general counsel to cut legal budgets by 30 to 50 percent
* Liberalisation, which is allowing people who are not qualified as lawyers to provide particular types of legal services
* Information technology, which is becoming increasingly sophisticated so that computers can perform tasks that previously required skilled lawyers

To cope with the "more for less" challenge, law firms have tried charging less and alternative fee arrangements, but these efforts fail to achieve the cost reductions demanded by clients. The only two viable strategies, according to the author, are the efficiency strategy (which finds ways of cutting the costs of legal service) and the collaboration strategy (which involves clients sharing the costs of particular legal services). These strategies will require the breaking down of legal services into standard parts and custom parts, with the standard parts being commoditised and outsourced, in-sourced or computerised.

Courts will also experience radical changes, as access-to-justice issues are resolved not through higher levels of funding but through greater use of information technology. We can expect to see a whole range of online legal services including virtual courts and online dispute resolution. There will be new types of legal jobs, such as legal knowledge engineers, legal technologists, legal project managers, and online dispute resolution practitioners.

As with any predictions of the future, those relating to the immediate future based on currently observable trends are more likely to be accurate than those relating to the more distant future. Nonetheless, I found this to be a fascinating and easy-to-read book, which should be of great interest to anyone involved in law firm management.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thought Provoking 16. Oktober 2013
Von Dale E. Hower - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I thought this book was insightful and prophetic. It is chilling to think about the changes taking place in the practice of law and the impact they will have on the current structures for delivering those services. I am still reading the book, but the piece that seems to be missing is how traditional law firms transition to accomodate these changes.

A good read for those who believe or do not believe that inescapable "radical changes in the legal market" are afoot.
