Law Pracice Innovations (Autumn 2017)(2 credits)(Winn/Bassli):
This course will consider the professional and economic implications of innovations in the technology and service models for law practice in America. It will review the dominance of law firms in the American legal services market in the 20th century before exploring the challenges law firms now face as a result of changing client expectations, accelerating technological innovation and intensifying competition from outside the profession. Professional self-regulatory associations once successfully sheltered their members from outside competitors, but as a result of more rigorous application of antitrust laws to the practices of professional self-regulation, that is no longer possible. The economic impact of legal process outsourcing and automation of routine aspects of law practice is increasing. Although US law firms are not allowed to raise capital from public investors or enter into partnerships with consultants or accountants, in Australia, England and Wales such “alternative business structures” are permitted and the pace of innovation in the delivery of legal services is much faster than in the US.
