There are conferences and then, there are conferences. This year’s COLPM 2015 Futures Conference is the latter. The theme was “Rebooting Legal Services.” The keynote speakers, Daniel Martin Katz and Dan Pinnington, provided the 100+ attendees with insightful and futuristic comments regarding alternative business structures and artificial intelligence, continuously posing the question, “What disruption drives change in law firms?”
