Abstract

Beyond their efficiency gains, there are deeper, perhaps unanticipated effects of electronic legal databases on the process of legal research, on the work process within organizations, and on the organization of the practice of law itself. Professor Trosow examines several aspects of the relationship between information technology, particularly databases, and the occupational structures and practices in the field of law.
