On this episode of The Legal Toolkit, your host, Jared Correia, invites Jordan Furlong to discuss how the legal marketplace is changing and how law firms can react. “In the short term,” Furlong begins, “we’re going to see a lot more regulatory reform ending in a small set of really advanced legal services, exclusive to lawyers.”  He goes on to prognosticate respecting the specific effects that changes will have upon solo and small firm attorneys, law students and law schools.  Despite the disruptive change that will continue to take place in the practice of law, Furlong does, in the long term, see the light at the end of the tunnel for the redefined attorney.

Jordan Furlong is a lawyer, speaker, and consultant based in Canada. He specializes in giving thought-provoking presentations covering the future of the legal marketplace and how to assimilate. Before working as a consultant and speaker, he edited top legal publications, including The Canadian Bar Association’s magazine National and The Lawyer’s Weekly.  Currently he writes the blog, Law21: Dispatches from a Legal Profession on the Brink, a multiple ABA Blawg 100 honoree.  His latest book, Evolutionary Road: A Strategic Guide to Your Law Firm’s Future, is available from Attorney at Work.

Tune in to hear more on the future of legal services: how these will be created, priced, and delivered, and how lawyers can take advantage of the changes.
