This is not necessary, believe me. It is all on you. Now.
Starting Point, the Problem
Look at our legal profession. It is about to enter a new era: the take-over by A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and its dominance by the Consumers, our paying clients.
Yes, you read right, “by the Consumers, our paying clients.” Anyone of us who still makes money on their ignorance will soon need to look for a new career.
In 20 years from now, 80% of an IP lawyer’s work will be taken over by A.I. – most of it by direct interaction with the Customers.
At the same time, the remaining 20% of legal work will be done by 100% of the IP law firms of today. There won’t be much shrinkage in the number of law firms.
Now look at any law firm of today and guess who will be cut off first: the trained lawyers or the paralegals?
The answer is simple: in 20 years from now, junior lawyers will do the work of most of today’s paralegals for the same salary, this goes without question.
Only very few paralegals will be left: namely those who can do the work of a trained lawyer without being one.
And only very few junior lawyers will make it to the top 4% of lawyers who will make 64% of the total income in our profession (think “Pareto Principle”). In other words, as compared with today, very few lawyers will make much more money.
Is there a Solution? Yes, there is.
This can mean only one thing for you: qualify yourself!
This is what my webpage is all about. About qualifying yourself.
You need a guide. Compare and chose your guide wisely.
Believe in customers, our paying clients. This is the only measurable variable in the game.
Don’t believe in famous names and certificates anymore. They are static.
Don’t believe in politicians and unions who promise to improve your life by subsidies and financial aids. They are not telling the truth.
Don’t believe in retirement promises. They won’t materialize.
Try to get more clients, try to sell them more and sell your services for a higher price. These are the only three ways to make more money.
There is no other way to make more money.
You will have to systematically learn how to do this.
Start with this today. Start here.
