Legal Lean on the horizon

Jason Moyse and Aron Solomon put together an "unconference" looking at New Law and the Legal Lean movement. The LegalLean conference was a small but sold-out affair held at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto.

As the organizers noted, technology is "leveling the playing field on access to knowledge and subject domain expertise, much of what lawyers actually "do" has come under scrutiny" and so far, "the bar for innovation in law has been painfully low but the shift is happening."

"The mashup of startup and Six Sigma concepts are part of the #NewLaw 'revolution' and therefore an appreciation of both the theoretical and practical aspects of 'lean' models is therefore a must.
"

It was a tech savvy group and the story of the event is best told through the tweets of the participants.
