What would legal services look like if they were designed to maximize efficiency, rather than tradition and privilege? What would the courts look like? Very different in each case, as our guest Jordan Furlong, a legal markets analyst and commentator, explains. Such changes are being widely discussed now as we see the legal system – reliant on physical appearances, and designed to make (some) sense to experts, but none to the general public –shut down with COVID-19. Can we use this moment to really take hold of the need for change, and get serious about redesigning both legal services delivery and the courts? In Other News: NSRLP is continuously compiling and updating information from around the country on court closures and procedure changes, information on how to swear affidavits in various jurisdictions, and will also shortly be putting out A2J, social justice, and legal education content lists – stay tuned to our website for these and more COVID-related content; we encourage you to check out NSRLP West on social media; and finally, for an encouraging read, check out our blog post from last week by Tania Perlin, “Kindness and Compassion in Times of Fear and Uncertainty”.
