At a time when the industrial revolution has not fully reached every party of the world, a new dynamic, fast growing and unstoppable revolution rolls out of control across the entire planet. This is the "communication revolution"...computerisation, globalisation and the explosive growth of electronic connectivity that is rapidly flowing in some manner to all points of the globe. The communications revolution has (or soon will have) the capacity to dramatically modify the fate of nations, businesses, professions, and individuals wherever situated.

A necessary aspect of this revolution is that there must be the capability of inter-nation communication through mutually understandable language, protocols or common awareness. With this commonality, the potential effects on the planet are diverse and extreme. From the extreme, we may witness the integration between entire states. At the other end of the spectrum, the most the minimal but substantiative effect makes it possible to passively learn the culture, religion and the social relations of our fellow countries.

Medicine, engineering, computer sciences and certain other fields of science have been the first to generate the use of their respective common communications. The success of the computer sciences is the model for communication within that particular worldwide community. But to utilise the resources of the communication revolution for the most laudable consequences for mankind, all aspects of endeavour must follow this model in some manner or another.

And is here at Alpha Universal that we begin this task for the "law". In many respects, the law is the most important domain that must find a model to communicate between nations in this newest revolution, as it is the law that is the broad fabric that covers the planet which ultimately holds together all commerce and mutually necessary concepts of justice. The law gives the communication revolution shape, limits and boundaries, those characteristics that are always necessary to generate reliability and stability...two factors without which the revolution would flounder in chaos and anarchy. And it is the law that is the battle line between tyranny and freedom. When freedom is at stake, in most countries today, it is the trial lawyer who fights for the retention of that freedom. The role of law is to be the glue that holds this revolution together and creates the capability of delivering the dreams and aspirations of planet's citizens...delivering the full promise of the communication revolution.

The task is not easy. Each state, each country has its own body of law. Fortunately, each of these bodies of law have sufficient similarities that there is ground for mutual understanding between lawyers of the world. However, this mutual understanding can only find its greatest potential by lawyers of each state providing co-operative assistance and knowledge to their brethren lawyer from other states. And in this process of mutual assistance, there will come increased commonality of legal language, legal protocols, and universal concepts of justice.

This task is not easy. Added to the ideals of the legal community to close its differences, there are the obstacles of nationalism, political distinctions, religion differences, cultural conflicts, internal tensions, and diverse economic realities.

This task is not easy. Though a uniform legal language and understanding is beginning to emerge, such as the ICC protocols on commerce and banking, such uniformity is not sufficiently developed for most of the needs of the practising lawyer. And it is most important to recognise that a uniform concept of the goals of legal order has yet to be clarified and defined.

Alpha Universal ? World Trade Lawyers (universal lawyers) is the initial effort from the legal point of view to create the possibility that the lawyers of the whole world speak in some respects the same language...whatever that may eventually evolve. But here the evolution will begin.

ALPHA UNIVERSAL begins the task by bringing together in this Association lawyers from around the world who have the pragmatic need to be able to consult with their brethren lawyers in foreign nations about client matters that may deal with the laws and other aspects of that particular foreign state. In this process of mutual co-operation the benefits are several: (a) the client matter is properly processed, (b) the lawyers learn about each other's laws, cultures, and local differences, and (c) each lawyer in the Association has the confidence of knowing that there is a fellow lawyer capable of giving assistance should the need arise, and (d) the potential for developing life-long personal relationships between the various members, relationships which can be passed from generation to generation. This is progress in shrinking the planet to a peaceful village.
