Law Times – ‘Employment revolution’ signals rise of freelance lawyers

An “employment revolution” has arrived in the legal industry that will mean the rise of the freelance lawyer, an industry analyst says in a new paper. The New World Of Legal Work, written by Jordan Furlong and commissioned by LOD, says a look into the crystal ball suggests law firms will be smaller and hire fewer full-time lawyers as the legal industry catches on to the widespread phenomenon of temporary and freelance work.

The report also featured in the following publications: The Times, Prism Legal, The Law Society Gazette, The National, Legal Business, ABA Journal, The Global Legal Post, Legal Futures, Charon QC, Law Fuel and Lawyers Watch.
