This talk examines why the large-scale forces that have already transformed the global economy – globalization and the shift in economic activity toward the emerging economies in the Global South, the exponential rise in the speed and sophistication of information technology, and the blurring of traditional categories of organization and thought – are producing “disruptive innovation” in the market for legal services, and the implications of these changes for law, lawyers, and the rule of law.
