Title

An Article We Wrote to Ourselves in the Future: Early 21st Century Views on Ethics and the Internet

Description

Written from the viewpoint of the year 2050, this Article discusses the clash between legal ethics and the technological revolution of the early twenty-first century. As a result of ethics rules being applied to new technologies in ways never contemplated under traditional circumstances, lawyers had to be overly cautious when they used the Internet to correspond with or seek out clients, or otherwise promote their legal services. The lesson learned is that the legal community should reflect on the harm caused by over-zealous regulation and take a more reasoned approach to the use of technology for the benefit of lawyers, judges, and clients.
