The second part of my two-part column on “The Innovation Gap” is now posted at Above the Law. (Actually, it was posted a week ago, but I was so busy with Legalweek in New York that I did not get to mentioning it here.)

If you missed the first part, my premise is simply this: I hear a lot about the need for greater and greater degrees of innovation in legal technology if we are ever to close the justice gap. But as I see it, the real problem is not a lack of innovative technology, it is that the legal system resists innovation.

In the first half of the column, I addressed why the legal system is so resistant to innovation. In the second part, I offered 10 suggestions for what can be done about it.
