Legal technology can be a daunting subject for the average lawyer or legal professional, particularly when you get past the lighter subjects like online marketing and into the more complicated territory including e-Discovery and data security.
Over at the Legal IT Professionals blog, Burke & Company is providing a concentrated six-week blog — dubbed Legal Technology Observer — focused on unpacking practical technology topics for those who aren’t yet as tech savvy as they’d like. The first post on the blog explains:
LTO is designed to be useful for all legal and legal IT professionals, but especially for people who are relative newcomers to legal tech, eDiscovery or social media who are looking to learn the ropes. For those outside the legal technology “bubble”, the industry can seem like a sea of acronyms and buzzwords, so we will ask experts to define terms clearly, without jargon.
Thus far, LTO has touched on topics including practice management software, the Electronic Discovery Reference Model, and predictive coding tools. They’ve also posted an interview with yours truly this morning in which I discuss some of the history of the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center and how lawyers, legal professionals, and vendors can work with the Center.
