High Tech and Legal Ethics
About This Course
To compare technological advances to a comet in comparing the legal profession to dinosaurs surely seems quite apocalyptic. But, if one understands the near-term horizon for advances in computer technology that will dwarf the mindboggling changes that occurred from 1945 to the present, and if one understands that the most important function of our profession is to protect "Liberty Writ Large" (see #0B, infra), and if one also understands how advances in the former will soon have the potential for radically changing the concepts of individuality and free will, it doesn't seem quite so apocalyptic. Consider the information at Science, Technology, Human Intelligence, Artificial Intelligence & Liberty. See also AppB (Appendix B) regarding how the "Scope and Rapidity of Technological Changes" in this century will pose the most daunting challenges our profession has ever faced since its creation many centuries ago under common law.
