On the latest episode of The Digital Edge podcast, Sharon Nelson, Esq. and Jim Calloway talk to Andy Perlman of Suffolk Law School about the rising trend of technology audits for lawyers. The audits, popularized by D. Casey Flaherty, measure how efficiently lawyers are using technology and determine how much time (and clients’ money) they could be saving. Suffolk University is partnering with Flaherty to enhance and automate the audit. Tune in to hear more about the audit, the partnership with Suffolk, how to get involved, and more.
