In this episode, Richard Susskind talks to George Miller about the gaining momentum of technology and AI in the law profession. They discuss just how vital it is that lawyers learn to reinvent themselves and work alongside technology and machines rather than compete against them in the next decade, as well as the evolving nature of the relationship between client and practitioner.
Susskind also addresses the opportunity young lawyers have to bring about and be a major part of social change in the legal profession, in both their attitude to changing job roles and by placing themselves within firms that support innovation and technology.
