Professor David Wilkins joins Victor Li, legal affairs writer for the ABA Journal, and Laurence Colletti, producer for Legal Talk Network for a discussion about ‘The Global Age of More for Less’. Specifically, they address how the legal industry will need to adapt to globalization, speed of technology, and changing client preferences. Today’s client has more information and is asking for greater value at lower cost.

The old ways of building your legal practice are changing. It is no longer enough to simply charge more when you get better at what you do. In this new age of more for less, attorneys will have to find new ways to provide greater value at lower cost, while still making an adequate profit. Professor Wilkins advises that with difficulty comes great opportunities for those that are able to adapt to future market demands. Tune in to hear his ideas for harnessing technology, getting more out of employees, and working in networks so your legal practice can produce more for less.

Victor Li is the legal affairs writer for the ABA Journal. Previously he was a reporter for Law Technology News, the American Lawyer magazine, and Litigation Daily (NYC). A former prosecutor in the Bronx, Victor earned a J.D. from Tulane, a M.S. from Columbia University School of Journalism and a B.A. in history from Amherst.

Professor David Wilkins is the Lester Kissel Professor of Law, vice dean for Global Initiatives on the Legal Profession, and faculty director of the Center on the Legal Profession and the Center for Lawyers and the Professional Services Industry at Harvard Law School. He is also a senior research fellow of the American Bar Foundation and a fellow of the Harvard University Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics.
