What this means is that the Canadian lawyer of the 21st century needs to be a rather different creature than that of the 20th. Or maybe it’s more accurate to say that we need to be what we’ve always been, but more; that our profession needs skills that we’ve always known, but now it needs them in greater ubiquity.
