This week on the Unprecedented podcast, we hear from Gillian Hadfield, a professor at the University of Southern California’s Gould School of Law and author of Rules for a Flat World: Why Humans Invented Law and How to Reinvent It for a Complex Global Economy.

Hadfield talks about ways that the legal industry is failing to meet the needs of both corporate clients and society broadly, and how technology and other reforms can improve that. “The demand for legal work is exploding,” she says. “The demand for the existing type of legal work that’s being supplied in the market, that’s what’s shrinking.”
