Richard Susskind, the author of "The End of Lawyers?," says that in the future, corporate attorneys who embrace emerging technologies and novel ways of sourcing legal work will continue to be successful, while those unwilling to change will struggle to survive. Susskind predicts that there will be five types of lawyers in the future: expert trusted advisers and enhanced practitioners, who will look much like contemporary lawyers, to be joined by legal knowledge engineers, legal risk managers and legal hybrids.
