This paper looks at technological and economic changes affecting lawyers, and their effect on the competitiveness of large law firms. It explores methods of unbundling big law firm features, and providing similar services on a more ad hoc basis. In addition, it considers whether current legal education is properly preparing students for a world in which large law firms will be much less dominant. Based on a talk given at Hofstra Law School in March of 2009.
