first_imgLawyer use of technology to provide legal services in the United States is nearly universal. More than 97 percent of respondents to the ABA 2003 Legal Technology Survey indicated that they used a computer for work-related tasks.The survey is a comprehensive look at how the legal profession uses technology. More than 1,500 ABA members in private practice in the U.S. returned questionnaires relating to law office computing, litigation and courtroom technology, and Web and communications. The survey covers issues including technology training, budgeting, hardware and software purchases, as well as where and how lawyers use technology.Lawyers continue to adopt technologies common in other industries, underscoring the similar business needs lawyers share with other professions. More than 26 percent use a laptop as their primary computer, and more than 70 percent have access to a laptop on a temporary basis. Nearly all lawyers, 97 percent, reported using e-mail for work-related tasks, with eight in 10 using e-mail every day for such purposes.Lawyers have seen an increase in their development of business Web sites. More than two-thirds of respondents now have a company Web site, and every firm in the survey with 50 or more lawyers reported having one. However, fewer firms were hosting their Web site internally, down to 37 percent from 40 percent in 2002.High speed Internet connection has increased in law firms, with 36 percent of respondents now using DSL to connect to the Internet at work, up from 27 percent last year. Just 12 percent of respondents use dial-up connections, down from 20 percent in 2002.Of the 90 percent of lawyers who used the Internet to conduct research of any type, almost two-thirds favored Google as their general-purpose Internet search engine or directory, up from 52 percent last year.Another 16 percent of respondents preferred Yahoo! — a 7 percent drop from the previous year. While the Internet is a significant research tool for lawyers, more than half of those surveyed still receive their technology information from print publications, as opposed to the Web.One area of significant growth over the last year was security. In possible response to the increase of unwanted e-mail, anti-spam software usage increased from 48 percent in 2002 to 72 percent in 2003. E-mail and Internet policies also grew in importance, with 60 percent of firms reporting that they had an e-mail usage policy and 57 percent reporting an Internet usage policy, increases from last year of 11 percent and 6 percent respectively. More than half of the firms had implemented a disaster recovery or business continuity plan, up 10 percent from the previous year.In the general office software category, there were few surprises. Word processing, spreadsheets, and accounting were still the most popular general software packages. The availability of software applications specifically geared toward the legal profession increased, with time and billing being the most widely available, at 78 percent of firms, and widely used at 46 percent.The survey is an annual project of the ABA’s Legal Technology Resource Center, a specialized unit providing lawyers, bar associations, law schools, and other legal organizations with information on technology and its use in the practice of law. The center’s professional staff research and write on technology issues and provide continuing legal education on practice management using technology.

first_imgby: Dan BergerAs much as I like quick lists and tips on improving skill sets and becoming a better person, achieving those ends also involves a journey of self-discovery that isn’t so black and white.Leadership Coach David Roppo says in a LinkedIn article, “Leadership, especially the legendary type, requires a journey. There isn’t a shortcut, quick fix approach, or an effective method for micromanaging life and/or personal behavior.”He explains that legendary leadership “is a product of internal development on both emotional and spiritual levels.” In other words, what you see is what you get: The characteristics you exhibit on the outside come from who you are on the inside. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
