I realised I haven’t blogged for a while. Reason is that as well as the rather hectic home and work life, I’ve a few other Legal IT projects on the go. First up I’ve been working on an article for “Managing Partner” magazine. I finished writing this at the weekend, so hopefully it will see publication in one of the upcoming issues. The topic is on WorkSite in a law firm, looking at the challenges of running a WorkSite setup, lessons learnt etc. The article is from experience of using WorkSite but would really apply to any legal DMS. The author terms means I can’t publish on here just yet, but will be able to in the future so if you can’t get hold of a copy I’ll post on here eventually.
Next up is a talk I’ll be doing at LawTech Futures 2012 in March on mobile technology (smartphones and tablets mainly) in law firms. Rather than a product review, it’ll be more on how lawyers can and do use them and where the tech is going that will be useful to lawyers. I’m talking at 13:40, so if you’re at the conference come and say hello!
And finally I’ve been asked to speak to the British Columbia Legal Management Association in Canada. This one is still in planning stages, but looks like will now be scheduled in May. Unfortunately this is a webex and telcon talk rather than a visit to Vancouver. But the topic on Technology – what’s new? should allow for a pretty interesting subject.
More regular blogging will resume once I’ve finished up the slides for my talk for LawTech Futures which from the email I’ve just received as a very strict deadline…..
