Technology has changed virtually all aspects of life over the past few decades. To think it would not affect legal scholarship would be arrogant, foolish or maybe both.
The increased speed of the Internet has provided a platform for the creation of a wealth of innovative technologies. In less than a generation, we have gone from trudging to the library across campus to 24/7 access around the world. The speed and access can provide immediate gratification for our research needs. On-line repositories make full-text PDFs, data sets, pre- publication working papers, and other content a mere click away. Blogs and social networking provide context for the research, while Skype and video conferencing have given rise to virtual learning and real-time collaboration.
