Episode Notes

Legal Talk Network producer Laurence Colletti interviews Jordan Furlong, Professor David Wilkins, and Professor Deborah Rhode, panelists from ‘Reporting Out with Reaction’ at the 2015 ABA National Summit on Innovation in Legal Services at Stanford Law School. The panel involved the discussion of challenges in the delivery of legal services and practical solutions to these issues. Together they discuss impediments, opportunities, and taboo subjects within the ABA that affect the way that legal services are provided in the United States today.

Professor Rhode recommends that lawyers rethink legal education and open the market for various levels of legal representation. Professor Wilkins suggests different organizational structures of legal service delivery, which would require a new system of service valuation. Furlong discusses how private sector ownership of legal service providers would work. All three panelists agree that there are some major changes and many more discussions needed in the legal sphere.

Jordan Furlong is a legal market analyst, writer, speaker, and consultant for the legal profession. He works with Edge International and often speaks about opportunities to improve and enhance legal services.

David Wilkins is a professor at Harvard Law School and is the director of the Center on the Legal Profession. He has been studying the legal profession for 30 years.
