From the CBA Legal Futures Initiative: A Guide to Strategy for Lawyers.

  • July 01, 2015

Everyone knows a good one can take you places, but coming up with that strategy is about more than making a to-do list. It starts with taking an honest look at where you are, and deciding where you would like to be in five years. Figuring out how to get from “are” to “would be” is the tricky part.

Richard Susskind, a leading thinker on the topic of the future of the legal profession, has been with the CBA Legal Futures Initiative as a special advisor since its inception three years ago. He has distilled the tools and methods he developed over decades of experience consulting with law firms and legal departments into a practical guide for strategizing that serves as a complement to the Futures report published in August 2014.

The CBA has launched the guidebook on June 25. If you would like to receive a copy, please contact us at
