Our latest poll asked NYCLA members to think about the future of legal services and the extent that those services will become systematized in the future. Surprisingly for a group of lawyers (since lawyers are notorious for resistance to technological changes) 87 percent of those surveyed said that more comprehensive legal services will be available online within the next 5 years. The small minority disagreed saying that legal services need to be tailored, are too specialized and too complicated to be made available online.
I would love to hear more from those of you who predict more legal services will be available online in the future. What do you see: Skype consultations? form complaints? mutually agreed upon automated dispute resolution?
