The future of legal business models and regulation

A quick sketch of Professor Gillian Hadfield’s presentation to the California Bar’s task force on innovation and access to legal services, on the need for business mod4l and legal regulatory reform.

Can we create more efficient, accessible legal services if we create new business models that have scaled up entities that employ lawyers – but aren’t run by lawyers? That allow for sharing of revenue?

This would mean a regulatory scheme that is risk- and outcome-based, and that regulates entities rather than individuals.
