Minutes of the Conference on the Future of Legal Services
On 11/12 January 2018, we held the inaugural conference on the future of legal services . This event emerged from a “back of the envelope” sketch at a coffee break at Harvard Law School in 2017. Leo Staub, John Flood and Peter Lederer were there for the LawWithoutWalls kickoff. They were talking about the changes facing the world of law. While there is an abundance of lectures, papers, and hackathons, there is rarely a chance to simply have an extended dialogue. They decided to change that – and here we are! An amazing group from the cutting edge in academia, corporate and legal practice, and the world of alternative legal service providers gathered in St. Gallen and contributed their thoughts on the developments in legal service that we are facing. This publication shares the insights gathered during these few valuable days.
