What is the FuturesChat?

FuturesChat will continue into November every Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

From November 5th to 26th, Monica Goyal, founder of My Legal Briefcase and member of the Futures Initiative’s Business Structures and Innovation Team, will host a series of chats on topics related to legal business structures, technology, and innovation. Here’s what we are talking about this month:

  • Innovation: What areas of law are benefiting most from innovation? What is driving success? What are the barriers to change and how can they be addressed?
  • Structure: Should we allow non-licensee shareholders? Would this result in conflicts of interest? Are special rules required to regulate non-licensee structures?
  • Commoditization: What tools or approaches have you introduced in your practice to improve productivity, efficiency and revenue? What are the implications of the commoditization of legal services for legal professionals?
  • Technology: What technologies do you see impacting access to justice? What are the challenges and possibilities?

To participate, log on to Twitter, follow @MonicaNGoyal, and search for the #cbafutureschat hashtag.

FuturesChat participants are invited to share their thoughts, ideas and opinions. When the chat is over, we’ll post a summary and a conversation archive on cbafutures.org  for those who are interested in the topic.

Everyone's welcome to join the chat. So stop by every Tuesday in November, check it out, join in, and tell your colleagues about it!
