Costs and responsibilities

Sam Glover had an interesting and thought-provoking piece earlier this week over at lawyerist, where he laid out the reasons why lawyers are so expensive and his opinion, at least, that this really can’t change unless there is a also a corresponding change to the rules of professional responsibility.

Sam makes some good points, which is why the market has (so far, at least) responded by creating non-lawyer entities to provide services. How much this trend will continue and how real lawyers (and their regulators) will response is at the heart of the changing legal landscape of the future.
