Abstract

Although networked information technologies are transforming the ways that legal professionals do business, the future of legal practice is likely to remain secure in the information age. Less certain, however, is the future of the prevailing status quo within the legal professions as market forces pressure them into adapting to new ways. Evidence of this change is found in the narrowing of the strip of blue water between lawyers and the increasingly professionalized and expanding paralegal community.

Keywords: Legal Professions, Information age, Paralegals
