Rapid innovation in technology will impact legal practitioners and their clients, affecting everything from trial practice to client requests for electronic billing.  Aggressive law firms are proactive in utilizing technology to enhance efficiency and provide greater value to clients.  For these client-centric firms, staying current with legal technology in 2015 will be as much a priority as recruiting top-flight legal talent and obtaining the very best results for their clients. Separately, and also importantly, access to the judicial system and fair justice to every person who enters our courthouses are fundamental entitlements.  Members of the New York judiciary and court personnel have made extraordinary efforts to fulfill those constitutional mandates despite declining resources and significant increases in the volume and complexity of the cases that come before them.  But continued underfunding inevitably will result in delays in the hearing and disposition of cases.  In 2015, providing our judicial system with the support it needs to ensure the timely administration of justice must be a first priority.”
