If you have a bit of time over the weekend, this video of futurologist Ray Kurzweil speaking at the recent “Future of Legal Technology” event is highly recommended. See also tweets with the hashtag #lawtechfutures2013.
He talks about the inevitable and exponential advances in technology and drops a number of hints about what legal technology might look like in the short and medium term. He also suggests that advances in other fields such as health, bio/nano-technology and manufacturing – all of which are on the cusp of huge leaps – will call for new legal solutions.
