What will be changes that will create legal work in 2017?

In November, 2008, after President Obama was elected I wrote: Are you ready for change?  I don’t remember protests across the country from those who voted for John McCain or didn’t vote. After our recent election I looked back at that post. If you have a moment, you might go back and read it.

I’ve been researching to find something similar to what I found in 2008, and it has been a struggle. I did find: When is Donald Trump’s inauguration, what will happen on the day and when will Barack Obama move out of the White House?  I am posting the link, in part because it has a video clip from President Kennedy’s memorable Inaugural speech.

Since I couldn’t find an article outlining what will change, I created  my own list.

  • Infrastructure construction
  • Trade
  • Immigration
  • Tax
  • Health Care
  • Defense Spending (Government Contracts)
  • Banking
  • Cannabis (from state elections)

I’m sure I am missing some changes that will impact the legal profession. What are they?
