sonyreader.gif Richard Susskind opines on the future of law books. richard01.jpg In his article: It’s a book, but not as we know it, reader Richard explores whether (or when) we will give up law books in favor of devices like the Sonyョ Reader. PUNCHLINE: Susskind is probably right – it is not whether; it’s when will law books go electronic. Perhaps a more important question is what other uses will become common place for such a reader – perhaps clients will review draft agreements on such devices soon, or even reports on transactions. Imagine a law firm that gave the “reader” to clients and then sent documents (like agreements or opinions) electronically, ready to read with the quality of paper? Would such a practice create a competitive advantage?
