Those who don't know their history...

It is a truism that those who don't know their history are doomed to repeat it, and the legal profession is no different.

How/if the legal profession will change and react to new technology, new trends, etc. have been making the rounds in the blogosphere recently (including ours). A new book by Washington and Lee University School of Law Professor James Moliterno argues that this is nothing new.

In The American Legal System in Crisis, Moliterno argues that the legal profession is always facing "crisis," often of their own design, as traditionally (and arguably, still), regulators and legal organizations have a tendency to look backwards, not forward in the larger context of satisfying both time-testing ethical duties and the important societal role of attorneys being useful members of modern life.

For some attorneys, Online Legal Software is part of these new ways of thinking that combine both the modern and time-tested. Are we right for you? We'd be happy to show you around.
