This work examines the effect of advances in IT upon legal practice, and analyses anticipated developments. It explores the extent to which the role of the traditional lawyer can be sustained in the face of the challenging trends in the legal market and new techniques and technologies for the delivery of services.This is where the legal profession will be taken, it is argued, by two forces: by a market pull towards commoditisation and by pervasive development and uptake of information technology.
