Lawyers Should Take Notes by Hand

Family Law Reimagined

One of the law's most important and far-reaching roles is to govern family life and family members. Family law decides who counts as kin, how family relationships are created and dissolved, and what legal rights and responsibilities come with marriage, parenthood, sibling ties, and other family bonds. Yet despite its significance, the field remains remarkably understudied and poorly understood both within and outside the legal community.
Written by Jill Elaine Hasday, Family Law Reimagined is the first book to evaluate the canonical narratives, examples, and ideas that legal decisionmakers repeatedly invoke to explain family law and its governing principles. These stories contend that family law is exclusively local, that it repudiates market principles, that it has eradicated the imprint of common law doctrines which subordinated married women, that it is dominated by contract rules permitting individuals to structure their relationships as they choose, and that it consistently prioritizes children's interests over parents' rights. In this book, Jill Elaine Hasday reveals how family law's canon misdescribes the reality of family law, misdirects attention away from the actual problems that family law confronts, and misshapes the policies that legal authorities pursue. She demonstrates how much of the "common sense" that decisionmakers expound about family law actually makes little sense.
Family Law Reimagined uncovers and critiques the family law canon and outlines a path to reform. Challenging conventional answers and asking questions that judges and lawmakers routinely overlook, it calls on us to reimagine family law.

The Law Office Of The Future

The landscape is changing for the physical law office space.  Now you can look into the future.  Gensler is an integrated architecture, design, planning and consulting firm with a variety of projects ranging in scope from a wine label to urban design for a new city. The firms provides architecture, brand design, consulting, interior design, landscape, planning & urban design, product design and sustainability services.  It is making a a big push in the legal services industry.  As Gensler puts it:
The practice of law is undergoing a fundamental transformation in the way legal work is acquired and done. Change is a fact of life, and the velocity of change is driving the creation of faster, more agile law firms. In the future, legal work will be done differently, with different team members, and under different organizational structures. 
Work will be better managed, more collaborative, more transparent and more client-focused. The design of the law office in the future will need to address these rapidly changing influences which are fundamentally re-engineering how work is done. The law office of the future will be smaller, flexible, more collaborative, and technology enabled. It will look more like a business consulting firm than a law firm.
The investment Gensler is making is not minor.  It has created an entire website, redesign-law. com dedicated to its vision of the new law office.  The site is quite impressive.  Packed with videos and pictures, you really should check it out.  Here's a sample:
