I hope that your October is off to a great start. Over the past year or two, we have been hearing more and more about innovation. While it is most often in the context of technology and medicine, we have no choice but to acknowledge its importance in all aspects of the legal profession - from the way in which our law schools teach their students, to the way law firms train their associates, and how they package and deliver services to clients. We as lawyers have a lot to learn from the engineers and scientists among us.
In March 2012, I first wrote about this topic as part of my monthly series in the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, called "Paradigm Shift." Since that time, innovation has only become more ubiquitous, even in the legal profession. I thought I would dust this one off and share it with you, given the timeliness - and timelessness - of the topic.
As always, I welcome your comments!
Wishing you a good week,
