Computerization of Legal Materials


The ability of the computer to store vast quantities of data and to search such data in a matter of seconds to retrieve specified information from it makes it an extremely attractive tool for the lawyer involved in drafting legislation, policy formulation or the day by day practice of law. Although experiments using the computer in the legal area date back to the late 50s, it is only within the last ten years that computers have come to be used by lawyers on a regular basis.
