This chapter discusses the future of law and the legal profession. The bulk of the chapter focuses on the amount of law, and closely examines recent claims that the country suffers from a “litigation explosion” or is overburdened by government regulation. The chapter also offers some closing thoughts on the necessity of a robust legal system in a society of strangers.

Keywords:   litigation, litigation rate, litigation explosion, hyperlexis, regulation, deregulation
