I spoke with a panel of industry leaders in a virtual roundtable about where the legal field is headed and asked for their advice on navigating prospective 2017 challenges. The participants include:

Laura Broomell, COO of Greene Espel, and president of the Association of Legal Administrators
Ray English, Assistant Dean for the Office of Career and Employment Services at Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University
Jordan Furlong, principal, Law21
Tony Gomes, SVP and General Counsel, Citrix Systems
Bill Henderson, Professor of Law, Indiana University Maurer School of Law
Kate Holmes, managing director, FTI Technology
Joshua Rothman, partner, Fitzpatrick, Cella, Harper & Scinto

From cybersecurity and global policy uncertainty to changes in the selection of outside counsel and career services aligning with admissions, descriptions of a destabilizing market were tempered with a recognition of the opportunities ahead.
