Lawyers can successfully adapt to the disruption of the Information Age just like we adapted to the legal challenges of the industrial era -- build a system for building the type of legal human capital that is in short supply. This was original logic of the Cravath System, which created specialized business lawyers in an environment where they were scarce. This Clockworks approach still works, but the specifications of the system need to be updated. I offer a prototype of what we might include in a 21st century Clockworks approach to lawyer development.
