As we begin the second decade of the twenty-first century, the law is
changing dramatically as it seeks to shape and adapt to new conditions.
Economic markets are becoming global, transactions require cultural
adaptation and understanding, populations are more mobile, and
communication technologies such as the Internet bridge distances and
time zones to form new communities around the world. Law Day 2010
provides us with an opportunity to understand and appreciate the
emerging challenges and enduring traditions of law in the 21st century.
