article description
Technology has already transformed the way that law is practiced. The use of computers and digital legal resources, such as LexisNexis and Westlaw have been around for decades, but these are just some of the major technological advancements that have transformed law. For instance, it was groundbreaking for a law firm as prestigious as Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe to have a website in the late 1990's, which was getting around 5000 visits a week. Now law firms not only have websites but also use a variety of social media services to promote their firm and services. In addition to promoting firms, this technology has also been used by attorneys to keep in touch with their firms and complete work from anywhere.
