More on Law as a Commodity

Human Law ponders whether the legal business will soon be the commodities business.  He cites two recent articles from David Maister and Richard Susskind that speak to the coming trend toward commoditization of legal services.  According to the Susskind interview, some refer to commoditization as "supermarket law" in that it will entail the sale of prepackaged product rather than information service and open the door to the provision of these services by non-legal providers.  The message that Human Lawyer takes from these pieces is one of woe unto those firms that don't listen, because commoditization is coming sooner than we think.
