The Future of Lawyering

What roles will lawyers play in our society in the coming years? While lawyers will certainly continue to represent clients in our adversary system of justice, many of the assumptions about dispute resolution that have guided us in the past are now being questioned. The search for a more efficient delivery of legal services continues to accelerate, driven in part by technological advances. The legal practice of tomorrow will bear little resemblance to the traditional model that has been a staple of the profession for so long. Increasingly, lawyers are policy makers and elected officials, corporate counsel and advocates of reform. Legal education trains people to develop analytical skills that society values. But along with these skills comes a responsibility for lawyers, whatever their role, to be aware of how their work affects our society. The pursuit of justice doesn’t take place just in a courtroom.
