Law Practice's Brave New World

Technology advances have changed the way law gets practiced and attorneys not keeping up with the changes are on a road to professional ruin.  This at least is the conclusion a judicial panel reached at a recent LegalTech New York conference, reports Joe Dysart, ABA Journal.  The judges' comments touched upon e-discovery, ethics and technology.  One panelist, U.S. Magistrate Judge James C. Francis of New York's Southern District, summarized, "The absence of technical knowledge is a distinct competitive disadvantage."
