A SDNY Judge's insight on the Future of Litigation

I have provided a link to a prophetic article written by US District Judge Shira A. Scheindlin regarding the future of litigation, published in the NY Law Journal on February 5.

Judge Scheindlin addresses five changes to the practice of litigation and how they "affect the bench and bar: (1) jurisdiction; (2) pleading standards and case tracking; (3) vanishing trials and changing jury culture; (4) alternative dispute resolution; and (5) the impact of electronic communications on civil and criminal litigation."
