The most important and useful book I have ever read about technology's impact on lawyers ... I give Transforming the Law the highest recommendation. It is a must-read for firm partners and others responsible for making strategic decisions about law and technology, including lawyers concerned about their future in the profession. Jerry Lawson, Law Practice Management (and author of The Complete Internet Handbook for Lawyers) I would recommend this book to anyone interested in thinking about the changes that are being wrought by information technology in the law and courts arena. Herbert M. Kritzer, The Law and Politics Book Review
