Legal rebels unite!!!!

While I am busy “rethinking” the legal profession (and doing my part to implement change with FreelanceLaw and the National Association of Freelance Legal Professionals), the ABA Journal has given a great boost to us visionaries through its Legal Rebels project. 

A Legal Rebel road tour has just kicked off that will profile 50 of the countries’ legal visionaries and I am eager to follow its progress, especially because I’ve personally talked with some of them and know what profound and important changes they are working on.
