There is significant hype surrounding the “disruptive” impact of new computational technologies on the practice of law. Compared to other industries, such as finance and retail, the legal profession has been a late-adopter of technology, but is now catching up.

In the process, legal services are being reshaped. As part of this, roles, skill sets, and work practices are rapidly changing (e.g., the rising importance of the Chief Information Officer role).

Dr Fish’s research maps the new technologies being incorporated into legal services, as well as how this is changing the structure of the profession.
