The Rise of Technology in Law or Why Susskind Didn't Look Far Enough into the Future...

Today I was at the City University of Hong Kong. It is celebrating its 50th anniversary and the Deans are holding a series of Deans' Summits.

The Law School Dean, Christopher Gane, held his summit on the Global Challenges of Legal Education, which also happened to be the topic of my paper. We had a wide group of contributors from China, Taiwan, the US, Europe, Canada, Australia, the UK (are we part of Europe?), Singapore, and more.

One of the recurring themes was the role of technology in law and legal education, which I said would play a larger role but not necessarily take over. I think I was wrong. See below for why.....
