The Computerised Lawyer provides a comprehensive introduction to the technology and application of computers in law. Over the last 5 years it has become increasingly recognised that the skills associated with new technology are so important that proficie ncy in the field is now being viewed as an integral element in the education and skills development of all law students. New curriculums are being developed which incorporate the issues discussed in this book, and professionals will find the text useful and highly relevant. This book fulfils the need for a textbook which, whilst assuming no prior knowledge of computing, manages to cover all the key issues associated with information technology and its relevance to legal issues and practice. Philip Leith and Amanda Hoey have completely rewritten the first edition of this book to bring the reader an up-to-date text that will be important to everyone working with computers in law.
