"The Impact of Alternative Business Structures on Legal Education in Law Firms and Law Schools in the United Kingdom" (Chapter 4 from Innovating Talent Management), explores the effect of the recently developed and new regulatory model for the provision of legal services in the United Kingdom (UK) under the Legal Services Act 2007. It thoughtfully analyzes the impact of alternative business structures in England and Wales, and how these have increased competition in the legal marketplace and at the same time supported innovation in the legal industry. It identifies and discusses the intricate and consequential connection between these changes and the need to deliver new and flexible ways of educating lawyers for the future to ensure that the continuum of legal knowledge acquisition and application is not broken between legal education, practical training, and legal practice. It concludes with the suggestion that successful law schools of the future are going to need not only to encapsulate high-quality academic teaching, but also to add value to students’ employability and professional skills.

Providing helpful tips, tools, and suggestions that support talent management professionals in their work as change agents and intrapreneurs, Innovating Talent Management acts as a resource for law firm leaders, legal department leaders, COOs, and CEOs as they consider their growth strategies and business priorities in the next decade. Law schools will also find this a helpful resource as they review, reshape, and relaunch their curricula to prepare graduates for the 21st century legal marketplace.
