It feels like eons, but it was just four weeks ago that I wrote in my column at Above the Law that coronavirus could be a tipping point for tech competence in law. In the weeks since, the legal landscape has been reshaped, with countless legal professionals now working from home. For many, that means new ways of using familiar technology. For others, that means learning new technologies for the first time.
If you would like to share your WFH legal technology stories, I would be honored to publish them here. The more we share during this critical time, the more we learn from each other and the more we help each other.
Suggestions for what you could contribute:
- The story of how you or your firm transitioned from working in an office to working at home.
- Your review of software, hardware or a platform that you are using during this time, including whether and why you would or would not recommend it.
- Advice for others on successfully maintaining a law practice (or other type of legal professional work) during this time.
- Tips on how to get the most out of a particular technology.
Note that I am looking for user contributions — posts written by legal professionals based on their hands-on experiences If you are a company looking to tout a product or service, then you might consider a paid sponsored post or advertisement.
Posts can be of any length. I reserve the right to edit for style and grammar, but I will not make substantive edits without your approval. Feel free to include photos and screencaps.
Either send me a query or your full post to my email address, which is my last name at gmail.com.
I am sorry that I am not able to pay for contributions at this point.
