In this talk, Professor Wilkins will discuss what the COVID-19 crisis and the Black Lives Matter protests mean for the future of the legal profession. He will do so by connecting these events to the history of the civil rights movement, and to a set of large-scale trends – globalization, technology, generational change, sustainability, and diversity – that were going on before the current crisis, but which will now be accelerated because of it. He will conclude by examining the implications of these trends for legal practice, legal education, and professional regulation.
