Highly publicized legal cases, such as those involving libel verdicts, obscenity prosecutions, the First Amendment, and other areas of media law have focused attention on only one part of the media's impact on law. This study, the first to explore the broad influence of computers andtelevision on the future of the legal process, explains the critical role of information and argues that the influence of the new modes of communication can be seen in changes occurring in many areas of the law. These areas include the goals and purposes of law, the doctrines and rules of law, theprocesses law uses to settle disputes and shape behavior, the legal profession, and the values and concepts that underlie our system of law.
M. Ethan Katsh is at University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Editorial Reviews

"In this lucid, well-documented commentary, he persuasively argues that the telecommunications media are effecting fundamental changes in legal doctrine concerning individual expression and, more specifically, the creation, storage, processing, and dissemination of information....A first-classbook, essential for law and journalism collections."--Library Journal
