The End of Lawyers - Susskind Leads The Way

In an email last night, law firm technology guru Richard Susskind OBE invited Janders Dean (in addition to others) to preview his greatly anticipated book "The End of Lawyers" which is a follow up to his 1996 bestseller "The Future of Law" and is extending this preview concept to a wider audience via The Times Online.

For those of you who don't know, Richard writes a column in the Law Section of London's leading newspaper The Times - each of you can now access the previews and provide comments to the book before it is published

The Times writes that "Alongside each week’s extract will be an interview with a leading legal figure: names include Richard Bennett, general counsel at HSBC,
David Morley, managing partner at Allen & Overy, and Mark Chandler, general counsel at Cisco Systems in the US."

This is a fantastic opportunity to preview what will no doubt be ground breaking global thought leadership on the future of law, and the challenges that lawyers around the world will face if they do not acept new ways of working.
