There has always been a debate about whether law has shaped society or the other way around. However, there is no question that law is an important factor to the progress and evolution of today’s society. During the last three decades, there has been another force that has shaped and is still shaping our society: Digital and Information technology.
The speed of technology evolution is so fast that is dragging society by its hair, just to keep up with it, while law is holding society by its feet. Eventually, if not dealt with, this will rupture society and the administration of law.
