I just posted a revised version of my article on legal crowdsourcing on SSRN here : http://bit.ly/1MUUAxK
This article (forthcoming in the American Business Law Journal) discusses the emergence of legal crowdsourcing, the various forms it can take, and its implications for the legal profession. Overall, I think this model has great promise to promote greater access to the legal system, improve the quality of legal advice and the rate of legal innovation. Entrepreneurs are already starting to use this technique to fend of larger competitors who use the legal system to bully smaller enterprises. The legal profession is starting to embrace this model and I think we’ve reached a turning point in the profession, technology and society to the point where we’ll see legal legal crowdsourcing become a mainstream practice. Take a look at the paper and let me know your thoughts.
