The Am Law Daily’s Aric Press (@aricpress) wrote an article summarizing last weekend’s ReInvent Law conference in Silicon Valley and provided a vision of what law may look like in the years to come:
It will be user-friendly and accessible via bright and fresh retail shops with the ambiance of Apple stores. It will be data-driven, with litigators turning to enormous databases capable of predicting results and guiding strategy. It will have the charm of an assembly line that parcels work out across time zones and specialties in structured processes certain to warm the hearts of project managers. And it will be beautiful. Imagine strings of case citations rendered as computer-generated graphics as appealing to the eye as they are to the analytical mind.
