Episode Notes

Dennis Kennedy thinks the real promise of technology is taking away the tedious bits of law practice so lawyers can do more of what matters. And do the numbers show that law school crushed all our dreams?

Why do lawyers fight so hard to keep doing the repetitive tasks that computers can and should do better than we can? Are we really that excited about spending our days doing tedious work just so we can bill lots of hours? Dennis Kennedy thinks lawyers should be excited to assign that stuff to computers — what’s left are the rewarding parts of lawyering that allow lawyers to deliver higher-quality services without selling mainly time and attention. Plus, maybe you shouldn’t be afraid of volume after all.
