They were hobbling pretty badly the last few months I worked there but I thought they would pull through. RIP

Much of the legal profession is becoming obsolete.

More law firms will be closing down.

With as hostile as the market has become in the last decade (clients demanding more for less), firms are finding themselves in a war of attrition to stay profitable. Older firms may be less adept at adapting to the changing times.

This. Every service —from calling a cab to buying airplane tickets—has become cheaper and easier to procure. People expect the same with legal services. They are frustrated by costs and procedure, and they are choosing to fly without a lawyer (something disturbingly easy to do). The crunch on lawyers is going to get brutal.
