Most of the old rules won’t apply anymore, while some will matter more than ever. Welcome to the new legal profession, powered by collaboration, innovation, and client service. This is your front-row seat.

A lawyer and journalist with more than ten years’ experience tracking trends and developments in the legal profession, Jordan Furlong is currently Editor-in-Chief of National magazine at the Canadian Bar Association.

Detailed thoughts on where legal practice is headed – all excellent, forward-thinking stuff.
