What are the laws that govern the world of 2030? Technology is changing the reach of the legal profession, from illegally downloaded music and movies to identity theft and cyber bullying, the Internet has uncovered new legal concerns.
The increasing connection between people all over the world through trade, finance, migration, and telecommunications is changing the boundaries that laws govern. As the world becomes more connected and state borders fade, international law and global cooperation will become more important, arising a need for talented and highly dedicated lawyers.

The best lawyers of 2030 will be fluent in a few languages and will be familiar with legal systems beyond their own country’s system. They will work closely with colleagues across state lines to settle disputes and ensure that fair laws are applied between two different legal systems. Lawyers will still go above and beyond for their clients, working hard to protect their rights and reach the best possible outcomes.
As with the legal profession today, tomorrow’s lawyers will have a lot of university education. An undergraduate in almost any field, especially philosophy and history, will be a solid foundation for a lawyer. Lawyers will need to have excellent communication, presentation and negotiation skills. A love of reading and an exceptional eye for detail will allow lawyers to succeed.
