Update the practice of law

A young lawyer gave up legal practice. Legal work, especially in litigation, is a lot of hard work to do research and present arguments. It can take long hours every day.

But I wonder if the practice of law could be upgraded. Do we really need to go through many complicated arguments, quoting from cases that occured several decades ago, and out of context to today's world?

Surely, the law could be updated and simplifed?

Sadly, the legislatures in most countries are dominated by lawyers who have a vested interest to maintain the current practice, to the detriment of the public.

Do you agree?
