Change is coming

And just before I get down to the day job, if you want to read an excellent review of Richard Susskind’s “The End of Lawyers” although I would urge you to read the book itself, you will do no better than Bruce MacEwen in Adam Smith, Esq. MacEwen has the telling quote from the book,

“I predict that lawyers who are unwilling to change their working prcatices and extend their range of services will, in the coming decade, struggle to survive. Meanwhile, those who embrace new technologies and novel ways of sourcing legal work are likely to trade successfully for many years yet, even if they are not occupied with the law jobs that most law schools currently anticipate for their graduates.”

I called myself Wilks when I first started blogging. The idea was that it would afford a measure of anonymity. For much the same reason, there was no photo. Times change, hence the photo, but I decided that even when I changed the blog’s title at the start of 2009, I should remain Wilks.
