The Role iPads Play for Lawyers…Today

Dennis Kennedy flips the format in this episode of the Kennedy-Mighell Report: he interviews Tom Mighell. Understandable, given Mighell wrote the book on iPads for lawyers. Mighell also gives presentations on using the iPad in a law office. Questions on using for what you’d expect lawyers to use it for: checking email, editing documents, calendaring, have declined. Lawyers are asking questions about how to use it take take pictures, send text messages and other ways to get the most out of the iPad. What’s the best note-taking app for lawyers? Best trial presentation software (TrialPad gets mentioned, often)?

Mighell offers these and other insights about the iPad, recommendations for lawyers and other legal professionals, and what might be next in the world of iPads. Mighell explains why lawyers might choose different tablets such as Android, Windows Surface, or the iPad and benefits of each one. It is important that lawyers pay attention to the main issues and changes with the latest iPad hardware such as new features in iOS 7 accessibility, Notification Pane, Control Panel, AirDrop, and using Siri to improve productivity.

Kennedy and Mighell also discuss the reason they implement some “easy tips” that they read or hear about and why so many are ignored or forgotten quickly. As always, stay tuned for Parting Shots, that one tip, website, or observation that you can use the second the podcast ends.
