It seems only yesterday that cutting-edge technology in the legal sector was defined by souped-up search engines (e-discovery) and document management systems (matter management).

In short, Millennials are taking over, and with that change comes a sudden and jarring shift in attitude toward technology. Far from rejecting it, younger lawyers are embracing it with open arms.
