We are all going to die and giving just a moment’s thought to this certain and momentous (but also, paradoxically, cosmically insignificant) future condition should presumably lessen your dull day-to-day frustrations a smidge (your spouse’s bad habits, the irritating whining of a co-worker, the insane packaging of many consumer electronic devices, or even, maybe, your horrible job or your barely tolerable job search).
But I would also like to add that there will be a future, for sure, even though none of us will be here to see a great deal of it. Nevertheless, it might be fun for lawyers to think about what it will be. And, who knows? Maybe it will be here sooner than we think so we will actually get to see whether the experts’ predictions come true? Please come and hear Mr. Richard Susskind, a literally world-reknowned expert, give a lecture at William Mitchell College of Law, tomorrow Wednesday, November 20, 1:30-4:30 on the future of the legal profession.
