Editorial Reviews

`His comments merit careful study by both lawyers and non-lawyers because they are written by someone who has the experience and the skill to analyse the ways in which legal services are currently delivered and to forecast the changes that lie ahead. ... Taken together these essays are a workof scholarship - but they also contain a mass of practical advice. As IT moves forward at an accelerating pace it is to be hoped there are more essays to come.'Sir Brian Neill, Financial Times
