Vision 2016 Commission: Comprehensive Study of the Future Practice of Law

The Vision 2016 Commission will perform an in-depth review of four general areas that will impact the future practice of law in Florida: Legal Education; Technology; Bar Admissions; and Access to Legal Services.

The Commission will look at the current impact, as well as the long-term challenges that the legal profession will face. This comprehensive study will provide the foundation to “prepare today’s lawyer for tomorrow’s practice.”
