Killing the Billable Hour in the Legal Sector? [PODCAST] – Jordan Furlong


Podcast: Download

Welcome to Law 2.0, a podcast series where we talk to individuals looking to change the legal services and regulatory sector.

In this episode we speak to Jordan Furlong. Jordan is a legal market analyst and an award winning legal journalist, who has served as the editor of three leading Canadian legal periodicals: The Lawyers Weekly, National, and the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association Magazine. In 2007, Jordan launched an award-winning blog called Law21: Dispatches from a Legal Profession on the Brink.

In this podcast Jordan speaks to us about:

  • How more efficient and technology-driven processes in legal services are impacting the way legal services are provided;
  • How new and recent entrants to the market have developed their markets shares and what this could mean for the revenues of traditional legal service providers;
  • What he sees as developing trends going forward, including latent and under-served markets for legal services and what this could mean for public development of these trends.
