Abstract

This paper was written in response to whether traditional legal principles are out shadowed by advances in legal technology, and whether the opportunity is present for both new and old to coexist. I argue that traditional legal principles still have their place in a tech-centric legal practice that prides itself as staying on the bleeding edge of innovation. I strongly believe that our status as legal professionals first and foremost must be retained no matter how much innovation we have the privilege of experiencing.
