The End of Lawyers?, 2008  $187.50 

Rethinking the nature of legal services 

By Richard Susskind OBE

Reviews:

'His advice cannot be ignored by those lawyers who want to survive the economic turmoil' - Joshua Rozenberg, The Law Society Gazette

'I feel Susskind has made an excellent start by opening up the debate' - Phillip Taylor, The Barrister

'The End of Lawyers is a fascinating and timely book' - 2009

'This book is addictive! Susskind has done it again with an extremely engaging blend of advice.' - Patrick McKenna

'I believe anyone working in a professional service form could find useful examples of what can be accomplished in their own profession, throughout this book' - Patrick McKenna

'Richard Susskind's predictions of 1996, in The Future of Law, can now be seen to be coming to pass. I am confident that those in this new work, where he looks even further into the future, will likewise come to pass, given the extraordinary depth of knowledge, analysis and reasoning he has brought to bear and which this book demonstrates on every pages' - Lord Saville of Newdigate, President of the Society for Computers and Law'

'Richard Susskind speaks to the issues facing law firms big and small, in-house legal teams, legal publishers, training establishments and individual lawyers. He has a lucid style informed by personal experience and observation and deep connections within the legal profession. This book should be compulsory reading for all who care about the future of the law.' - Mark Harding, Group General Counsel, Barclays

'If you don't quickly absorb what Susskind has to say, you'll already be behind in adapting to the modern legal profession, in-house as well as private practice. You can't and won't agree with everything here, but you must read it all and think about it all. It would be irresponsible (and self-destructive) to avoid reflecting on the voluminous arguments and examples presented here.' - David Maister, consultant and author, The Trusted Advisor

'Susskind remains the only the writer today who can put the future of lawyers and the legal professions on the agenda at the highest levels of government, the judiciary, the legal institutions, major corporations - and law firms' - Charles Christian, editor, Legal Technology Insider

'In The End of Lawyers?, Richard Susskind brilliantly and passionately shows us how to think about practising law in the 21st century. The book's inspirational outlook and yet practical approach make it a must-read for any lawyer aspiring to achieve professional success and make a difference for his or her clients.' - Dov Seidman, Chairman and CEO, LRN, and author, HOW

'Richard Susskind's new book tells us that we should, contrary to the profession's engrained conservatism, turn our mind to the future to better understand the profession and the law. It is thought-provoking and entertaining at the same time. I strongly encourage law firms and in-house lawyers to read this book and to embrace the new methods and technologies that Richard Susskind is recommending.' - Peter Kurer, Chairman, UBS

'This is a fascinating book. It raises serious questions not only about the future of legal practice, but about how legal services are structured and delivered now. As is to be expected from Susskind, the arguments are pacey and challenging. The conclusions and predictions are likely to provoke strong reactions, but the book will not fail to engage.' - Professor Dame Hazel Genn, Dean, University College London Faculty of Laws

'A wide-ranging book that is of value not only to lawyers contemplating their future, but to anyone whose work touches upon the law. Blending the futures of law and technology, Susskind's vision is far-reaching and tightly-argued, showing the displacement that lies ahead -- and the ways in which society can gain from it.' - Jonathan Zittrain, Professor of Law, Harvard Law School and author, The Future of the Internet

'This book paints a scary future. But as a call to arms, to embrace the future, it lays down a challenge for lawyers everywhere for we have no birthright, no power to avoid development, to 'freeze the frame'. Susskind makes a most persuasive case that the 'incremental revolution' has already arrived; so join it or be left on the wrong side of the barricades.' - Stuart Popham, Senior Partner, Clifford Chance

'Susskind's engaging book urges a drastic reassesment of the legal profession and suggests a series of reforms for law firms of the future ... In light of the current economic climate, Susskind may find that his predictions come true sooner than even he thinks.'The In-House Lawyer, February 2009

'This is an enormously important book, and if you have any interest in how the legal marketplace will operate in future, you have to read it...We talk a lot about "visionaries" these days, but in the legal profession, nobody seriously competes with Richard Susskind for this title, and this book shows why.' - Jordan Furlong, http://www.apexpub.com/%22http://www.apexpub.com/%22http://www.law21.ca//%22/%22, February 2009

'The End of Lawyers" is a must read for every managing partner in the country.'Mitch Kowalski, Financial Post, February 2009

In this much anticipated sequel to the legal bestseller, The Future of Law, Susskind lays down a challenge to all lawyers to ask themselves, with their hands on their hearts, what elements of their current workload could be undertaken differently - more quickly, cheaply, efficiently, or to a higher quality - using alternative methods of working. The challenge for legal readers is to identify their distinctive skills and talents, the capabilities that they possess that cannot, crudely, be replaced by advanced systems or by less costly workers supported by technology or standard processes, or by lay people armed with online self-help tools.

It is argued that the market is increasingly unlikely to tolerate expensive lawyers for tasks (guiding, advising, drafting, researching, problem-solving, and more) that can equally or better be discharged, directly or indirectly, by smart systems and processes. It follows, the book claims, that the jobs of many traditional lawyers will be substantially eroded and often eliminated. This is where the legal profession will be taken, it is argued, by two forces: by a market pull towards commoditisation and by pervasive development and uptake of information technology. At the same time, the book foresees new law jobs emerging which may be highly rewarding, even if very different from those of today.
