It's been 13 years since The Advocates' Society published Ethos, Pathos, and Logos: The Best of The Advocates' Society Journal 1982–2004, recalling the classical lynchpins of rhetoric. Advocates and Advocacy picks up where Ethos, Pathos, and Logos left off, covering 2005 to 2018, now with contributors from across the country. Have things changed? The digital age is undeniably pervasive, for better or worse. Advocacy continues unabated but has morphed into different forms and forums, especially with the rise of the regulatory society. Advocates now grapple with privacy, electronic communications, artificial intelligence and, in practice, the expansion of summary judgment. The delivery speed of legal information is nothing short of astonishing. Cases and commentary show up instantly on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media. To the next generation of advocates, our older ways will seem archaic, but that's for then. As one sees in this volume, the clarity and cogency of our current writing on advocacy – print or electronic – remains solid. I have collected here a selection of the best of the Journal, grouped into topics for ease of reference, from storytelling to humour with personal reflections in between.
