Critical Issues

The rate of change in the legal profession is unprecedented in its history. In a short 100-year time span we have progressed from travelling by horse to meet a client to meeting them on the web; from court filings being documents laboriously copied by hand to filing hypertext-linked arguments containing all facts, documents, argument and the law burned onto a shiny silver disk that can only be read on a computer screen; and from producing discovery in large paper stacks to producing e-documents such as databases that have no paper equivalent. Many of these changes have – or will – profoundly affect legal practice. This article is one writer’s view of the 10 critical issues facing the legal profession.
