This book was a most enlightening read! It gave depth of the insight the author has in terms of legal "business/practice development"; and is a book that every attorney, who is looking at his/her future in the profession, should read.

It's applicability extends beyond just the USA, but to other less-developed jurisdictions, who are catching up to the huge developments that have, are and will happen in the future.

What was most surprising to me was the fact that the author is not a "doomsday prophet" in respect of losses of jobs in the legal profession; but rather re-focuses the types of jobs that graduates of law programmes across the world might be directed into.

I gave it 5 stars because it was clearly written, easy to follow, interesting and thought provoking.

Professor Susskind is not on a mission to change your views. Rather, he aims to amicably present his own views on the future development of the law in England and Wales will develop, backing up his views with compelling evidence.

I would recommend this book to any aspiring lawyers - law students at any stage in their legal education whether stating out from university to New Qualified Lawyers.

Richard Susskind has a Marmite effect on many people. Those who say they dislike what he says often haven't read his books: just the headlines. Those who have read his books seem to lap up the clear, deeply knowledgeable and articulate way he discusses the future of the legal industry. If you are a lawyer and you haven't read this, or its predecessor - The End of Lawyers? - you may find life ahead aa great deal more surprising and challenging than those who have read it.

If there is one book that both aspiring and practicing lawyers should stop and read, this is it. In his absorbing, punchy style, Susskind emphasises that much of the training of new lawyers is based on past, not future, needs of the marketplace. And that many experienced practitioners are equally poorly prepared. Alarm bells echo through the 150 thought provoking pages. Excellent follow-up to Julie Macfarlane's The New Lawyer.

R Suskind makes some good points and their is a lot of value in reading this. He is a bit of a fantasist though and can leave law students feeling a bit like a chocolate fireguard

This is a useful and informative book for anyone looking to pursue a legal career. It is important to identify the external challenges law firms face and how they intend to respond to them. Susskind provides innovative ways of propelling change in this sector.

Really informative, as it explains how the legal field is changing because of the use of technology.
