There is a major shift in the law: New lawyers are finding many of the traditions of this venerable profession to be bending, shrinking, almost quivering. The movement is not necessarily a negative one. But the shift has many people running scared.

Of course, we know that change can often bring about a hint of the uncomfortable. This change is driven by outside forces, mostly economic, but also cultural and technology-driven. Therefore, it can feel even more frightening than anything we have previously addressed. Lawyers, as a general rule, do not scare easily. But watching our profession morph into a new species can certainly wreak havoc on the psyche, the bottom line and even what we envision as “the future.”
