Legal Technology—or “Legal Tech”—is disrupting the traditional operations and self-understanding of the legal profession. This chapter introduces the central claim of this book, namely that these developments are having and will continue to have a disruptive effect on the work of lawyers and that adapting to this new operating environment is crucial for legal professionals remaining relevant in an increasingly technology-driven world. The chapter outlines some of the main features of this on-going transformation process, describes some of the pressures it is creating for lawyers, and provides short summaries of the chapters that comprise this collection.
