The legal landscape is changing fast. Technology is changing the way legal services are delivered. Startup companies are unbundling legal services. Clients are demanding better, faster, less expensive, and more personalized service.
We believe that most law firms are unprepared to meet these changes. Server-based environments, paper-based workflows, staff-heavy organizational charts, cumbersome revenue models, and traditional law firm dogma are already outdated and overly resource consumptive, and are soon to be obsolete and ineffective.
The next generation of lawyers needs a different template for gaining experience and expertise, and for serving clients. For sure, some lawyers are destined for government or big firm employment. For others, there must be an alternative. An alternative that has low barriers to entry and low risk. An alternative where the lawyer is individually branded and builds client relationships from day one. An alternative where the revenue model is simple and effective. An alternative that prepares the lawyer for the next generation of the practice of law.
For them, there is the Law Practice Institute.
