The complete series: DIY legal documents for conveyancing transactions — the end of lawyers?

We’ve come to the end of the series of posts based on my presentation at The End of Lawyers, the Future of Law, which was the launch event for the Collective of Applied Law and Legal Realism.

Those who think you can complete a conveyancing transaction without a lawyer please raise your hands.

My overall conclusion is that obviously conveyancing lawyers aren’t going to be redundant anytime soon, but I’m hopeful for changes which will make the conveyancing process less of a maze. Certainty and clarity will be good for everyone (including lawyers).

Even if the conveyancing process becomes smoother, there will always be a market for the services of conveyancing lawyers — not everyone will choose the DIY route, especially for something as important as buying a home.

Here’s a list of the complete series:

  1. DIY legal documents for conveyancing transactions — can we really do it without lawyers?
  2. DIY legal documents for conveyancing transactions — why some people think you don’t need lawyers in a sale and purchase of property.
  3. DIY legal documents for conveyancing transactions — understanding the basics of a sale and purchase property.
  4. DIY legal documents for conveyancing transactions — sale and purchase and loan agreements.
  5. DIY legal documents for conveyancing transactions — time for a reality check.
  6. Ideating the future — how DIY legal documents for conveyancing transactions can become the new reality.

Thanks for reading.
