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 ongoing transformation process, describes some of the pressures it is creating for lawyers, and provides short summaries of the chapters that comprise this collection.
