  • Welcome to the legal technology revolution--you may not realize but you’re right in the middle of it. Today I’m going to talk about law & tech--and examine the rapidly changing technological landscape and its effect on legal practice--and how those who adapt will be better lawyers. Questions at end.\n
  • Astronomer--”Silicon Snake Oil”\n
  • “(Visionaries say) commerce and business will shift from offices and malls to networks and modems . . . Baloney.”\n
  • “Do our computer pundits lack all common sense? The truth is no online database will replace your daily newspaper.”\n
  • “Nicholas Negroponte, director of the MIT Media Lab, predicts that we'll soon buy books and newspapers straight over the Internet. Uh, sure . . .” \n
  • “Then there's cyberbusiness. We're promised instant catalog shopping—just point and click for great deals. We'll order airline tickets over the network, make restaurant reservations and negotiate sales contracts . . . . Even if there were a trustworthy way to send money over the Internet—which there isn't—the network is missing a most essential ingredient of capitalism: salespeople . . .”\n
  • Law school--Star Trek TNG--amazing technology--touch screen interfaces--voice responsive computers--tricorders--tablet computers. Still waiting for the transporter app...\n
  • Fiber-optic cables put in place during dot.com boom.\n

  • Technology is catching up to us and making the practice of law easier--Xerox eDiscovery prototype--large touch screen table.\n

  • But it’s important to understand it. But it’s not always easy.\n
  • \n
  • Sometimes it’s obvious\n
  • Sometimes it’s totally random\n
  • Sometimes it seems arbitrary\n
  • And sometimes it makes no sense. But I know you want to figure it out.\n
  • And you may feel like you’re on a one way trip to nowhere.\n
  • But it’s better than getting left behind.\n
  • There’s whole world out there waiting for you\n
  • Learn gradually. Take it step by step, day by day. \n
  • From 2010 Sunday Times article Susskind wrote: “In 1996 senior figures in the Law Society said that I should not be allowed to speak in public. I had been predicting that most lawyers and clients would soon communicate by e-mail and the feeling was that I had failed to understand confidentiality and was bringing the profession into disrepute.”\n\n
  • “I often get the sense, however, that lawyers feel that the impact of IT and the Internet has peaked, that technology has matured, and that, in consequence, legal work can carry on much as before, untainted by any further developments . . .”\n
  • “Within the lifetime of most readers of this book, our social and economic lives are likely to be radically overhauled as a result of the rapid emergence of a clutch of information and Internet-related technologies of unimaginable power.”\n
  • “All aspects of the raw technology with which lawyers are familiar will improve radically in a small number of years and thereafter, at an accelerating rate. Yet further advances can be expected: from the resolution of screen displays to the portability of equipment; from the speed of machines to storage capacity; from the availability of wireless connections to the bandwidth of these links.” \n
  • “My message to lawyers in this context is simple—far from approaching the finishing line, the race has barely begun.”\n
  • And, this is my challenge to you--change is good!...As much as change may be uncomfortable, you’ll find irrelevance is even more so.\n
