Richard Susskind, U.K.-based legal futurist — either you drink his Kool Aid or you don’t. Those who don’t contend that his dire predictions of the end of the legal profession are baseless. They assert that advancements in technology and institutional change haven’t significantly changed the day-to-day the practice of law, because lawyers are trusted advisors to and advocates for their clients — functions that can neither be outsourced to untrained personnel nor duplicated by machines.
