Lawyers get a bad rap, but without them, civil rights and even the rule of law could easily fall by the wayside. But the legal sector is imperfect, and technology is playing a critical role in making necessary changes, from making representation more affordable to streamlining processes that allow justice to be done.

Industry insiders lend their perspective on the technologies shaping the future of law:

“Social media is a game changer for the way clients find attorneys in the digital age. Not long ago, when someone needed an attorney, they would simply drive to their local law office, aptly labeled “Law Office”—sometimes even without attorney names or law firm branding. Today, lawyers need to continually differentiate themselves and their firms and engage with prospects on social media platforms by sharing knowledge-based content that establishes their expertise to a prospect with a particular need. Content and websites must to be optimized with SEO strategies, frequently supported by advertising.”

“Law firms will become more attorney-centric, shifting to operational structures that give each lawyer increased flexibility to meet their unique goals, personalities, and financial needs. Right now, firms of all sizes and across regions face tightening markets and slowed growth, with expenses outpacing revenue. As a result, law firms must think more like businesses—by putting talent first and competing on incentives. That means prioritizing attorney and client fit early on; offering objective, transparent compensation packages for attorneys with portable books of business; investing in attorney development, and other engaging in other practices that attract rather than alienate new graduates and lateral hires.”
