TechnoLawyer Takes The Stress Out of Technology
For all the efficiencies it brings to a lawyer's practice, technology can also be a major source of stress. Desktop crashes, missing or deleted files, security breaches, confusing interfaces . . . all conspire against lawyers trying to streamline their practice by harnessing the benefits of the latest technologies.
To the rescue comes TechnoLawyer -- a publisher of weekly electronic newsletters that provide lawyers who are members with product reviews, technology tips, practice management strategies, and other helpful information on a variety of technology-related topics. Contributors run the gamut from leading legal technology gurus to practicing attorneys with an enthusiasm for the latest software and gadgets. The TechnoLawyer community now stands at 13,673 members.
Consider, for example, TechnoFeature, consisting of technology articles written by experts. The November 15, 2005 issue featured an article by attorney and technology enthusiast Jeffrey Allen providing tools, tips and techniques for mobile lawyering. The August 22, 2006 issue shared the "Top 10 Hidden Features of PowerPoint for Litigators."
Have a technology question? Answers to Questions is a weekly newsletter in which TechnoLawyer members answer technology-related queries submitted by their (often desparate) peers. Every TechnoLawyer member is entitled to submit questions or answers. Recent questions addressed include: "Do you have any recommendations for a simple, economical network-based shared calendar and contact list application?" and "How can one ensure that confidential client files on a hard drive remain confidential on those occasions when it's necessary to leave one's computer with a computer technician?"
