Legal System is one of the most broken and deprived industries in terms of innovation. While we see every other system marching ahead with the latest technologies, the legal system has been confined to a small group of people. Most of the general public is unaware or uneducated in legal terms.
Crushed by the weight of a century of precedent, the legal industry lumbered into the millennium. The burden of the billable hour, the partnership pyramid, and an economy in flux had left associates tired, partners spooked, CEOs in open revolt, and GCs scrambling. Some chose to stick to their guns and press forward as they always had. Others saw an opportunity for innovation. After all, with the industry after industry being reborn through tech-led thinking and business acumen, why not legal services?
