Panel to tackle how law schools might adapt to changing regulatory legal landscape

The fourth virtual Redesigning Legal Speaker Series on Tuesday, Dec. 7, will explore opportunities being created for law school education by the growing trend of regulatory innovation in the legal profession.

The program is scheduled online from 1-2 p.m.

Registration is free but required in advance and can be completed by visiting americanbar.org.

Utah and Arizona have already enacted sweeping changes to how legal services can be delivered and who can provide them. Nationally, no fewer than 10 other states are in different stages of exploring, recommending or implementing regulatory change that would generally allow nonlawyers to provide some legal services. 

Panelists will focus on how law schools are responding and adapting to the prospect of fewer barriers to innovation that offer increased employment opportunities for their students, more roles for people other than lawyers in the delivery of legal services, the creation of tiered legal service providers and collaboration across professional fields to provide more and new kinds of legal services.
