Technology – learn to love it because there’s no leaving it. In fact, it seems those lawyers who do not learn to navigate the online IT highway may soon be left as “road-kill” alongside it. We journey to such destinations as the upcoming “eCourts,” a new virtual law practice that is online and paperless, and client markets through blogs, Facebook, Twitter and online legal directories. Everything about the practice of law is changing through technology, so discover why you need to incorporate IT due diligence into your practice.
