Inside this issue:

We've all heard it before: we must adapt our practices and adopt new technologies to better serve our clients if we want to ensure our continued relevance as a profession. And with the advent of artificial intelligence programs purporting to replace legal advice from lawyers, the time is now. This month we delve into this issue to explore the use of technology in our practices, and in the community, and laws around that use, for example in the realm of robotics in policing.
