Legal Talk Network producer Laurence Colletti and ABA Journal legal affairs writer Victor Li interview American Bar Association President William Hubbard at the 2015 ABA National Summit on Innovation in Legal Services. President Hubbard discusses the lack of civil justice for 80-85% of the U.S. population and how the conference brings regulators, lawyers, judges, professors, and technologists together to find solutions to this problem. Lawyers, he says, need to begin to understand that the legal landscape is changing and we need them to lead, adapt, and keep an open mind so they can maintain the integrity of the law.
In addition to being president of the ABA, William Hubbard is a litigator and trial lawyer with Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP in Columbia, South Carolina, a firm of about 500 lawyers.
