We live in a constantly changing world -
even arch-conservative lawyers need to adapt

"e-Court will re-shape the future of Canadian litigation - Forces transforming the legal industry promise the emergence of new models that will allow clients to reap huge efficiencies, but at the expense of law firms that fail to adapt"
