If you are interested in learning how to unbundle legal services in your law practice, this is an upcoming CLE taught by Sue Talia, the "grandmother" of unbundling.

+Ron Dolin  (@LegalNoise) has shared his syllabus and course reader for a new course he is co-teaching this semester at Notre Dame Law School. This is an excellent resource for legal technologists and lawyers wanting to dive into some of these topics.
This post includes the syllabus and course reader for Legal Technology and Informatics at Notre Dame Law School.

Here is the revised version of the Practicing Law Online ebook, which I first released in 2008 and updated in 2010. This revised edition focuses on business models for virtual law firms and goes beyond solos and small firms to apply the concepts to larger firms and in-house legal departments. The ebook walks the reader through the process of choosing a virtual law firm business model and examines methods of online delivery that work best with the firm’s practice area and client base. I also incorporated some of the design methodology and design thinking process I have learned here at Stanford. It's free. Enjoy.

The second edition of my book, Virtual Law Practice, will be released from ABA LPD Publishing this month. (There will be a digital copy for sale in the coming months and eventually it gets released on Amazon for those of you who want other purchasing options.)  I’ve updated the book significantly since the original publication in 2010 to include new technology solutions and methods of designing a law practice around technology and delivery mechanisms. More info in the post.....

+Ron Dolin interviewed present and former partners, CIOs and CTOs at large law firms for this insightful article that looks at why law firms are not investing in innovation despite changes in the legal marketplace. He pulls in the work of Clayton Christensen, Professor William Henderson, and +Ron Friedmann  among others. #lawfirms #legaltech #legalinformatics

I reviewed drafts of Roger Smith's paper referenced in this article. His ideas about re-engineering legal aid through the use of digital delivery are a good thing in my opinion.
