Last week, ReInventLaw, sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation and Michigan State University, held the first of a series of  TED style talks to discuss the future of law practice and the changes in technology and regulation we might see.  The ReInvent Law Laboratory was founded by MSU professors Daniel Martin Katz and Renee Newman Knate.  Its message is simple: Innovation. Technology. Entrepreneurship.  Professor Katz teaches e-discovery at MSU, one of very few law schools that offer such courses, and he has a warning to firms that continue to ignore the storm brewing and fail to invest in the tools required to deliver legal services in the 21st century: invest or lose out.
