Tour Report #25: The role of Information technology in modern legal practice
Yesterday I talked with Charles Christian, Editor in Chief of Legal IT Insider (both available online and in print), about the role of technology in the practice of law and the information tools used by lawyers in the modern era.
We looked at:
1. The consumerisation of legal software – why Facebook is so easy yet MS Word so difficult when it comes to training
2. Asked why don’t legal publishers adopt the iTunes approach to content – you buy the chapter you want, boot the 19 chapters you’ll never need
3. The use of social media
4. The gamification in continuing education and training, making it more fun to learn
(We had bad signal issues on Skype yesterday so in parts the sound broke up briefly. Beyond my control unfortunately)
