It’s spring and legal innovation appears to be sprouting across the Canadian legal business.
So much has been happening in Canada’s legal innovation scene over the past three months that it makes me wonder if we’re finally at the tipping point of change in Canadian legal service delivery.
It wasn’t always so. February started with a rather dour report by the Young Bar of Montreal called Employment and Young Lawyers in Quebec. The report highlighted the poor job prospects of young Quebec lawyers and made a number of welcome recommendations that included management and legal innovation training for law students, as well as better data collection with respect to articling and legal roles.
