'The value of the paperback edition of "The Future of Law" is twofold, for it contains not only the visionary words Professor Susskind originally wrote, but also a long and entirely new Preface bringing the book right up to date. In my view it is essential reading for all who wish to see our justice system improved, beacuse I am convinced that the problems of cost, delay and inaccessibility cannot be successfully tackled without taking full advantage of Information

<br>Now known as a technology wizard', Richard E. Susskind is widely acknowledged in the field of computers and the law. He is a Member of the Board of Management and Consultant to Masons Solicitors, and Visiting Professor of IT Law at Strathclyde University.<br>
