Not all law firms are equal. In fact, some of them are drastically different from one another. As technology becomes even more pervasive in the legal industry, the industry is changing and reacting.

This week on LawNext, I step aside from hosting duties and present a special live panel discussion from UC Hastings’ legal innovation hub, LexLab. The panelists spoke to an audience of legal tech startups, students, and legal professionals on some of the factors and considerations driving change in the law firm model.

Panelists speaking in this week’s episode are: Augie Rakow of Atrium LLP; Sameena Kluck, previously of Thomson Reuters and now with PaladinNick Long, director of Gravity Stack at Reed Smith LLP; and Patrick Palace, founder of Palace Law in Tacoma, Wash..

The discussion is moderated by Alice Armitage, professor and director of applied pnnovation at UC Hastings, and CEP of LexLab.

The panel was recorded as part of the LexLab lunch-and-learn speaker series. LexLab is an innovation hub within UC Hastings that is building a concentration in law and technology for students and an accelerator for legal tech startups.
