Web 2.0 - Mashing the future and the present

This is the title of an article in the April/May 2007 edition of Computers & Law. I don't often read Computers & Law because it is primarily aimed at Solicitors who work in IP/IT, however occassionally there is a real gem. This article briefly looks at how Web 2.0 is changing the way lawyers work and its use within Law Firms. One of my favourite quotes from the article is:

"Moreover, Web 2.0 impacts directly on legal practice - partly because of blogs, wikis and new ways to handle knowledge but mainly because of the attitudes and expectations of clients. You cannot afford to hear the client say, or see the look that says, 'you just don't get it'" The Society of Computers & Law are also running a conference at the end of June which looks interesting.
