Episode Notes

At the 2016 Annual Florida Bar Convention, Adriana Linares and John Stewart interview ABA Past President William Hubbard about his judicial luncheon speech. Mr. Hubbard discusses addressing regulatory framework in a timely way to deal with the increasing online proliferation of legal service providers. Lawyers themselves, he says, should embrace technology to reduce costs and maintain relevancy, rather than holding on to the status quo. Linares, Stewart, and Hubbard also talk about finding the right balance of technology and human lawyers, and provide examples of companies doing so effectively. With the right cost structures, Hubbard explains, there are a whole range of new opportunities for lawyers who can be more efficient and provide services affordably.

William Hubbard was president of the American Bar Association from 2014-2015 and is a partner at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP in Columbia, South Carolina, where he practices in business litigation. He is still heavily involved with the ABA, giving regular speeches and doing work with the Bar.
