It’s estimated that 90% of lawyers use mobile to check email; 34% of lawyers use tablets in the courtroom; 27% of law firms have legal blogs; 10% of individual lawyers have blogs; 48% use a tablet at work (and the tablet is capturing laptop share); 17% use litigation support software; 39% of blogs resulted in clients or referrals; 40% of solos and 30% of all lawyers use cloud services; and 58% use Dropbox to transfer and store files. Technology (including legal technology) moves fast, with new products and updates arriving at a dizzying pace.
Wouldn’t it be nice if this burgeoning technology resulted in less time in the office and an increase in billings? Many attorneys are finding this to be the case. Automating systems and keeping better track of files and cases has actually resulted in more flexibility and peace of mind for attorneys, even those having to juggle more responsibilities. In addition, smaller firms have discovered by using new technologies they are able to better compete with larger firms.
This year’s first Colorado Legal Technology Expo is October 27-28, 2014, at the CBA-CLE offices in Denver. The Legal Technology Expo is free and the place for the technology and legal communities to interact and to mutually benefit.
Not only will there be legal technology companies exhibiting, but short, educational seminars offered on the latest in technology for the legal community. Legal technology tips and best practices will be shared by experts with topics that include: Managing Interruption and Info Overload; Cloud Security; E-Recording; Using the Latest in Technology to Market Your Law Firm; and 5 Technologies Every Lawyer Should be Using Today.
We invite you to drop by, even for an hour or two, to the free Legal Tech Expo. Click here to find out more and to register for the 20-30 minute educational seminars.
