Technology used

Lawyers are increasingly using various forms of technology to perform more efficiently. Although all lawyers continue to use law libraries to prepare cases, most supplement conventional printed sources with computer sources, such as the Internet and legal databases. Software is used to search this legal literature automatically and to identify legal texts relevant to a specific case. In litigation involving many supporting documents, lawyers may use computers to organize and index materials. Lawyers must be geographically mobile and able to reach their clients in a timely matter, so they might use electronic filing, Web and videoconferencing, mobile electronic devices, and voice-recognition technology to share information more effectively.

  12. I bet a lot of the research could be outsourced to English speaking internet researchers that could do the same work at a fraction of the expense.

  14. I imagine law is an area in which technological advancements don't have that much of an impact compared to most areas of business.

  16. Very useful. It blows my mind how huge law values are. The law library at my school, which isn't a big law school at all, was bigger than the regular library easily
