This book is a short introduction to the future for young and aspiring lawyers. Tomorrow’s legal world, as predicted and described here, bears little resemblance to that of the past.

Legal institutions and lawyers are at a crossroads, I claim, and are poised to change more radically over the next two decades than they have over the last two centuries. If you are a young lawyer, this revolution will happen on your watch.
