A World of Programming Ahead

Steven M. Richman

This issue of the Section’s International Law News features articles on big data privacy and security and on the internationalization of law firms. The emphasis in these articles on pragmatism in dealing with privacy, cybersecurity, law firm management, and growing referrals is timely and necessary. As an additional overlay to the increasing use of technology in global practice, we have the added element of artificial intelligence. The overriding lessons, drawn from the front pages, are that no one and no company is immune, and that the technology will continue to expand, improve, and become more pervasive. The question is how we adjust, adapt, and, where appropriate, regulate. At our Spring Conference in New York in April 2018, we will have an entire track devoted to these issues.
