Remote working, the economic slowdown, and tighter budgets following COVID have really become a burning platform for change. How can the legal profession respond? LawVision is comprised of a team of forward-thinking strategists. Occasionally, through our “What If…” series, we will propose ideas we imagine could be possible. The question we ask you, the reader, is What if this change happens? We want to know: how would you respond? Are you prepared to respond? Whether you love the proposed idea, hate it, or fall somewhere in between, we invite your commentary.
Without further ado, What if…the attorney talent pipeline looks like this: law schools incorporate legal tech in the curriculum and ALSPs become the training grounds for new law school graduates? Prior to joining law firms, law departments, or other employers, these attorneys will have learned to leverage legal tech, apply legal project management, be familiar with agile teaming, and more. See this diagram for some additional detail.
