DEEP THINKING: THE FUTURE OF THE LEGAL PROFESSION IN AN AGE OF TECHNOLOGY

Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon

As I said at the Opening of our Legal Year, technology presents the profession with a “wicked problem”; one that is made up of multiple moving parts, engages the concerns of different stakeholders, and is ultimately incapable of straightforward resolution.

How, then, should we respond? As I said at the Opening of our Legal Year, technology presents the profession with a “wicked problem”; one that is made up of multiple moving parts, engages the concerns of different stakeholders, and is ultimately incapable of straightforward resolution. It is as enigmatic as it is colossal and so it would be foolhardy for any of us — the courts, practising bar, regulators or law schools — to think that we can master it on our own. Instead, what I think must lie at the heart of any response and animate all aspects of it is an unyielding “spirit of togetherness” among all of us who have a stake in the future of our profession.
