Worth Noting: "Viewing the Law in 2020"

The Complete Lawyer (vol. 3, #6, 2007) features four
articles on the future of the legal profession in Viewing
the Law in 2020. Of particular interest to those
preparing law students for practice is William Cobb's
article, "Are You Ready For The Revolution In Legal
Services?" Cobb, managing partner of Cobb Consulting
in Houston, suggests that creative problem-solving,
team-work and adaptability will become paramount skills
for lawyers as firms "seek more efficient means of providing
legal services including outsourcing work to those who can do
it faster and more cheaply."
