The article argues that these “alt. legal” entrepreneur-attorneys will be the most financially successful as well as best-situated to help the most amount of people. The article states: “By 2027 the legal industry will produce many billionaires, but few, if any, will be practicing attorneys – they will be alt.legal entrepreneurs solving huge problems at scale.”
