Review from hardback edition His advice cannot be ignored by those lawyers who want to survive the economic turmoil * Joshua Rozenberg, The Law Society Gazette *
I feel Susskind has made an excellent start by opening up the debate' * Phillip Taylor, The Barrister *
The End of Lawyers is a fascinating and timely book * Bruce MacEwen, Adam Smith Esq *
This book is addictive! Susskind has done it again with an extremely engaging blend of advice. * Patrick McKenna *
I believe anyone working in a professional service form could find useful examples of what can be accomplished in their own profession, throughout this book * Patrick McKenna *
Richard Susskind's predictions of 1996, in The Future of Law, can now be seen to be coming to pass. I am confident that those in this new work, where he looks even further into the future, will likewise come to pass, given the extraordinary depth of knowledge, analysis and reasoning he has brought to bear and which this book demonstrates on every page * Lord Saville of Newdigate, President of the Society for Computers and Law *
Richard Susskind speaks to the issues facing law firms big and small, in-house legal teams, legal publishers, training establishments and individual lawyers. He has a lucid style informed by personal experience and observation and deep connections within the legal profession. This book should be compulsory reading for all who care about the future of the law. * Mark Harding, Group General Counsel, Barclays *
If you don't quickly absorb what Susskind has to say, you'll already be behind in adapting to the modern legal profession, in-house as well as private practice. You can't and won't agree with everything here, but you must read it all and think about it all. It would be irresponsible (and self-destructive) to avoid reflecting on the voluminous arguments and examples presented here. * David Maister, consultant and author, The Trusted Advisor *
Susskind remains the only the writer today who can put the future of lawyers and the legal professions on the agenda at the highest levels of government, the judiciary, the legal institutions, major corporations - and law firms * Charles Christian, editor, Legal Technology Insider *
In The End of Lawyers?, Richard Susskind brilliantly and passionately shows us how to think about practising law in the 21st century. The book's inspirational outlook and yet practical approach make it a must-read for any lawyer aspiring to achieve professional success and make a difference for his or her clients. * Dov Seidman, Chairman and CEO, LRN, and author, HOW *
