California Lawyers View the Future
A Report to the Commission on the Future of the Legal Profession and the State Bar
This study reports the results of a survey conducted by the Institute for Civil Justice (ICJ) at the request of the Commission on the Future of the Legal Profession. The Commission was established in 1993 to identify the key factors that will influence the delivery of legal services and the administration of justice over the next 25 years; develop a vision of the California legal profession of the future; and recommend to the State Bar of California's Board of Governors how best to meet the future needs of the public and the profession. The ICJ's survey asked State Bar members how they view the current state of the legal profession, what changes they expect in the future, and how the Bar can help the profession serve the public, now and in the future.
