Professor Susskind OBE is world wide recognised expert on the future of professional service and, in particular, the way in which the IT and the Internet are changing the work of lawyers.

He affirms that the legal system “costs too much, takes too long and is unintelligible unless you’re a lawyer.” What needs to change is the “mindset” of lawyers.

He has advised on many government inquiries and, since 1998, has been IT Adviser to the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales. He is independent adviser to major professional firms and national institutions.

He also holds professorships at UCL, Gresham College, London, and the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

He has received numerous legal industry awards and is an Honorary Bencher of Gray’s Inn.
