Episode Notes

As globalization changes the legal marketplace, solo and small firm lawyers are scrambling to keep up. Why are so many attorneys resistant to embrace new technology? Should technological competence be the responsibility of law schools, the American Bar Association, or individual lawyers?

In this Special Report, Legal Talk Network host Adriana Linares and John Stewart, lawyer and legal techspert, interview Michele DiStefano and Michael Mills, presenters at the 2015 Clio Cloud conference. Michele, a law professor and founder of LawWithoutWalls, talks about globalization, the changing nature of legal services, and the responsibility law schools have to teach technological competence. Michael, a lawyer and founder of Neota Logic, Inc., discusses collaboration and interstate business models, eradicating the term “non-lawyer”, and how state bars and the ABA can encourage progressive change.

Michele DeStefano is a professor of law at the University of Miami and the founder and director of LawWithoutWalls, a part-virtual collaboratory of about 750 change agents including entrepreneurs, lawyers, academics, business professionals, and venture capitalists. In 2015 to 2016, she will be a visiting professor at Harvard Law School and visiting faculty lead of Harvard’s Center on the Legal Profession.

Michael Mills is the co-founder and chief strategy officer of Neota Logic Inc., developers of a no-code software platform with which lawyers and other professionals build expert systems to automate guidance, documents, and processes. Before Neota Logic, Michael was a biglaw lawyer and a law firm IT and manager.
