About This Course
The iPad—over40 million sold worldwide and the numbers are only growing. We use them for movies, for games, for information and entertainment. And now, it’s giving us legal advice. Yes, despite the conventional wisdom of reluctance amongst lawyers to jump on the bandwagon, a growing number of firms have begun distributing the devices to their attorneys. And Apple is responding in kind, developing apps that allow attorneys to review and annotate documents, read briefs and pleadings, access court rules, take notes in meetings and hearings, access calendars and contact lists, conduct research on Westlaw and Lexis and log billable hours. In fact, USA Today reports that lawyers are even using them in mediation, providing the mediator with an iPad preloaded with video interviews, case documents and even case animations.
