27 November 2012


Redbrick Solutions have commissioned an extensive market research initiative which aims to lift the lid on the mood of the profession as the last tumultuous year draws to an end.

The survey, supported by Legal Futures, explores the impact of changes to the market; such as the introduction of ABS’s, increased regulation and new ways of attracting and winning clients; on both the law firm and the individual lawyer.

The research further looks to better understand attitudes to technology and the importance placed on technology by the law firm in planning for future prosperity.

The survey consists of 21 short questions, taking no longer than 5 minutes to complete and is open for a limited time until 5pm on the 17 December.  All participants will be entered into a prize draw to win an IPad (just in time for Christmas!).  Additionally all those who take part will be able to receive the full survey report, with highlights to be published with Legal Futures in the New Year.  All responses will be treated in the strictest confidence.

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
