Great post. It will require law firms though to set aside time resources to develop suitable products. I suspect many law firms will rail against that as much as the idea of productization itself.

The insistence on having all of their lawyers fulfilling billable hour targets means that innovation and experimentation get squashed. It will be the outsiders therefore who innovate and not the established order.

Richard Susskind has a pithy warning in his book `The End of Lawyers?' that reminds us that Google was not invented by librarians. Unfortunately, future legal information services may well not be invented by lawyers.

Great post, as I said.
