Like most things, law is under serious pressure in the pandemic crisis. In such circumstances, its processes, practices and personnel often reveal their weakness and shortcomings. Understood broadly, law and the legal profession are no different from other social activities: there are limitations as well as strengths that are on display. In this talk, I will take a broad approach in examining law’s performance both in terms of the lessons to be learned about its response to emergencies and ideas about what might need to change going forward. As such, the talk will take a historical perspective (how has law done in the past?); a contemporary analysis (how is law doing now?); and future possibilities (what should law be doing to adapt itself better?). The overall ambition is to probe and provoke as much as to offer definitive answers or solutions.
