Title of the conference: Upgrading Justice
Speaker(s): Richard Susskind
Invited by the Harvard University Law School for a conference, Richard Susskind lectured on the future of Justice and legal professional services through three issues :
- The pression on law firms
- Access to justice all around the world
- What impacts of legal education
During his lecture, Richard Susskind discussed the future of justice by inserting it into a context of numerical, economic and societal evolution.
Alternating economic, technological and mathematical demonstrations with anecdotes and humorous winks, Richard Susskind succeeded in approaching the question of the future of justice with singular energy and positivity, far from the ambient pessimism generally surrounding this problem.
