New year, new you, right? Every year, as we embark on a new turn around the sun, millions of us will resolve to change for the better. And as the first month of 2019 winds down, we’re approaching the point where we start seeing progress towards realizing our resolutions—or start forgetting about them altogether.
Though resolutions may be highly individual, they need not be limited to one’s personal life. Perhaps 2019 is the year to embrace a more public-facing resolve. To think about how we can change our approach to the law for the better. To focus on the change you’d like to see in the world around you—or at least in the legal industry. (We can take up gardening or start marathon running on the side, as well.)
To that end, Logikcull recently surveyed a dozen innovative legal thinkers, from judges to law professors to attorneys, to see what changes or developments they would like to see in the year ahead. Their responses show the wide range of challenges—and aspirations—facing the industry in the year ahead and offer diverse perspectives on how to improve the legal system as we move forward. Here is a sampling.
