The Comment examines the jurisprudential evolutions inspired by the Feudal Age (property law), the Commercial Age (contract law), and the Industrial Age (labor relations law). The author suggests that, while humankind has recently moved from one great socio-economic epoch, the Industrial Age, into a new Information Age, there has not been a corresponding jurisprudential shift that would reflect the socioeconomic changes. The author argues that this "time-lag" phenomenon is consistent with past jurisprudential shifts that followed the changes from past socioeconomic eras. The author concludes by speculating on the probable evolution the shift to the Information Age will inspire.
