Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we’re talking with Mark Cohen, founder and CEO of Legal Mosaic, about what law schools should be teaching but aren’t. Mark’s experience in the legal industry is vast and varied, and, in this podcast, he offers his unique perspective on the current state of the legal profession, as well as what may lie ahead in the future. In light of these changing circumstances, what should you demand from your legal education that you’re not getting?
In this episode we discuss:
- Legal process outsourcing (LPO) and technology, and how they’re changing the delivery of legal services
- The distinction between legal services and legal products
- The weakening dominance of big law firms and the emergence of ancillary career options for new lawyers
- What they’re not teaching you in law school that’s vital for success as a lawyer
- The disconnect between doctrinal law and meaningful, practical experience
- The need for project management skills and collaboration in a legal practice
- Skills and qualities that could set you apart as a new lawyer
- What does the lawyer of the future look like?
