Professor Richard Susskind OBE is an author, speaker, and independent adviser to major professional firms and to national governments. His main area of expertise is the future of professional service and, in particular, the way in which the IT and the Internet are changing the work of lawyers.
In his latest book "Tomorrow's Lawyers:..." , he claims that legal institutions and lawyers
are poised to change more radically over the next two decades than they
have over the last two centuries.
