About the book:

This edition makes Susskind's highly-acclaimed and best-selling book available in paperback, and includes a new and substantial preface by the author. His book demonstrates why the future of the law is digital. It shows why and how IT is radically altering and will alter further the practice of law and the administration of justice. Beyond automating and streamlining traditional ways of providing legal advice, IT is re-engineering the entire legal process, resulting in legal products and information services focused on dispute pre-emption rather than dispute resolution, and legal risk management rather than legal problem solving. With easy and inexpensive access available, IT will help to integrate the law with business and domestic life. This book explores the implications, opportunities, and challenges presented by the information society as it irrevocably changes how law will be practised and justice administered. In this paperback edition, the author provides a substantial new preface which develops many of his central themes and takes account of likely developments in technology.
