Submissions to the Current

The Current: The Journal of PLI Press
is a quarterly journal geared to providing premium coverage and commentary on new and developing issues in a broad range of practice areas. Each issue of The Current brings you ten to twelve original articles written by leading attorneys and offering a range of expertise and perspectives on critical issues facing practicing lawyers and the legal profession.

A quick glance at the interest-area headings we’ve added to the table of contents will give you an idea of the range and variety of topics covered in this Autumn 2017 issue. “Technology” plays a prominent role in three of the articles—on artificial intelligence, drones, and delivery of entertainment—but don’t presume you have to be a tech or IT practitioner to benefit from these fascinating discussions, which implicate a diverse range of practice areas, from privacy and data security, to intellectual property, workplace/employment law, contract law, personal injury, and beyond.

In addition to articles covering developments in the core practice areas of immigration, trademark, patent, and tax law, this issue of The Current presents an intriguing look at cannabis law and the novel questions practitioners may face with respect to this evolving area of law.

This issue’s final article features a topic of importance to all practitioners. “Building Client Relationships in the Digital Age” is an engaging examination of how lawyers communicate with clients and others in the workplace, focusing on the differences between how Millennials and other generations communicate, and on achieving the common goal of successful client relationships whether using phone calls or text messages. This article features guidance and tips on business communications skills that will benefit every attorney, regardless of age or practice area.

As the pace of change in the law—and indeed in the practice of law itself—continues to accelerate, so does the need for more current expert commentary and analysis. The Current intends to fill this need, providing practicing attorneys, academics, and members of the judiciary with insightful commentary and analysis of those changes.
