Impeccably researched and compelling... The Future of the Professions is a must read for all professionals and policy makers. (Kathy Laster, Law and Courts in an Online World)

Richard and Daniel Susskind's The Future of the Professions: How technology will transform the work of human experts (Oxford) belongs to a new genre of reflection and prediction. It is no Luddite lament for a world we have lost, but surveys rapid change with insight and optimism. (Jonathan Clark, Books of the Year 2016, Times Literary Supplement)

The Future of the Professions: How Technology Will Transform the Work of Human Experts, is a must read for anyone who wants to gain insights into where the legal profession is going ...

If you care about the future of your profession and wish to add further comment to the raging controversies surrounding it, better get yourself a copy now. (Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richard Green Chambers)
