The Technologically Savvy Lawyer
By Daniel June

What do you have as a law student that practicing lawyers and even your professors lack? Technological edge. Being part of the next generation of lawyers, you are naturally at the pulse of technology. Use that to your advantage. The legal profession has been utterly expedited by the latest technologies such as tablets and iPads, and has streamlined legal work with note taking software such as NoteMap.

Get a Tablet PC. The handwriting converter will free you from legal pads, and you can take notes and use all the apps and resources wherever you go. Taking electronic notes has the advantage that you can readily edit and groom your notes, and print as many copies as you need.

You will also want to start keeping a database. Have all your notes, contacts, and information in one place, and back it up periodically. By streamlining your data you can access it quickly wherever you go.

Familiarize yourself with the sort of software lawyers use, such as PCLaw, Timematters, Amicus Attorney, and the rest. Sample a few trial versions and find one you like. They will help you with your cases.

Notemap is a good program for outlining and note taking you will also want to look into.

Gaining your technological edge will make you a flashier sell to your potential employers, and it will also help you as you actually do your job. Take the extra time, therefore, to familiarize yourself with all the technology available for lawyers. It also looks good on a resume.
