    In its final report, the ABA Commission on the Future of Legal Services concluded that, “technology, globalization, and other forces continue to transform how, why, and by whom legal services are accessed and delivered. Familiar and traditional practice structures are giving way in a marketplace that continues to evolve. New providers are emerging, online and offline, to offer a range of services in dramatically different ways. The legal profession, as the steward of the justice system, has reached an inflection point. Without significant change, the profession cannot ensure that the justice system serves everyone and that the rule of law is preserved. Innovation, and even unconventional thinking, is required.” Some of this change must come in the form of fundamental reconsideration of how societies regulate the legal profession, the practice of law, and the delivery of legal services. In this program, speakers confront these questions.
