This morning, if my plans don’t go awry, I’ll be attending the kickoff meeting of the new Arizona Supreme Court task force that will assess the management and governance of the State Bar of Arizona. I’ll report back on how it goes and what comes next.
Until then, you may want to skim some material about proposed changes to the Canadian legal system. True, the northerly report, if adopted, would make significant changes far beyond one bar association. But I was impressed by the Canadian task force’s willingness to look at all elements of the legal profession with a new eye.
I’m suspecting that the Arizona Supreme Court seeks a similarly clear-eyed look.
And I agree: 106 pages is tough sledding on a Friday. But that’s why you should start with a Jordan Furlong column.
His concise and point-by-point analysis deconstructs the Canadian Bar Association report, which he admits he likes quite a bit. And, I’m pretty sure, his column and the related report are solid guideposts for what we may see coming to these United States in the not-so-distant future.
Here is Jordan’s post.
Have a wonderful—and transformative—weekend.Follow @azatty
