When will Law’s Kodak Moment Arrive?

I ran across this chart in a fascinating article on the the decline of analog photography and was struck by how a disruptive innovation (digital cameras) can change an industry (analog film) without changing consumers’ underlying behavior (taking pictures).  It also made me wonder about the wisdom of those who assert that clients’ continuing need for legal services is an accurate predictor of those same clients’ need to hire lawyers.

I don’t believe that it is.

    I don’t follow. So you’re suggesting that people will no longer need to hire lawyers or that other legal models are going to supplant the need for traditional legal services?

      My point was that legal services in the future may not be provided in the traditional way (by lawyers).
