Excerpt from Young Lawyers, Go West

“Let’s be clear. The legal profession was disrupted long before many of us got here. I’m not here to preach #disrupt. Disruption is what created this… opportunity. We may not have seen it coming while digging through case law in the law library, but it happened and it’s real. And now we’re faced with a difficult decision. Do we stick it out and make our way through the traditional legal track that’s seemingly collapsing beneath our feet? Or, do we take the incredible education that we have, and try to do something great with it?” -Young Lawyers, Go West!
