To paraphrase Hillary Clinton, it takes a village in order to have true innovation within the legal industry—especially when it comes to closing the sizable gap between those who need access to legal services and the ability of the bar to provide them.
It was a jam-packed second day of the National Summit on Innovation in Legal Services at Stanford University, with numerous panels, keynote speakers and rapid-fire TED-talk style mini-lectures from professionals from a wide range of industries. On Sunday, we heard from nearly 30 speakers, including judges, government officials, academics, legal service providers, activists, and private practice lawyers ranging from big firm partners to solo practitioners to representatives from legal incubators.
