Who is embracing current challenges, looking for opportunities to do it better? Tell us about the people and ideas that are changing Wisconsin's legal landscape.
May 20, 2020 – Within a matter of weeks, the COVID-19 pandemic has turbocharged the legal industry’s transformation, say legal experts. It has propelled the legal profession to move to remote work and distance learning. And, it will change forever how the legal system serves the public.
The profession has taken a quantum leap in aggressively adopting and leveraging technology to provide legal services amidst this crisis,” says CLIO cloud-based technology founder Jack Newton in a recent InsideTrack interview.
“We are seeing 5 or 10 years of technology adoption and change happening in the legal space compressed into five or 10 weeks.”
This is no longer just a matter of getting more efficient or getting a little better at delivering a client experience,” says Newton. “This is about surviving an entirely new world.”
