The essays attempt to demystify how legal services are delivered and create a mosaic of the contemporary legal marketplace. The intent is to spawn reflection- then action.[/message]
There is great opportunity to improve upon the delivery of legal services.. The myth that “law firms must handle legal matters from start to finish” has been debunked. And clients now decide what’s a “legal” issue.
