Do you use an iPad in your practice?

ipad in one hour for lawyersTechnology is a huge part of our everyday lives. We use technology for just about everything, so it’s no surprise that lawyers are using technology in their law practices. In fact, the iPad is a very popular tool for several attorneys. There are many benefits to using an iPad to help make your practice more efficient.

Here are a few ways the iPad can help your practice:

  • Using an iPad allows you to work on the go. You can take your work with you anywhere. Instead of carrying tons of paperwork, you are able to access everything you need with the swipe of your finger (or stylus).
  • The iPad can be used in mediations to present to a plaintiff. An iPad is an alternative to using a projector.
  • The iPad gives you a place to store notes instead of jotting things on paper. There are apps that allow you to organize your notes.
  • Using an iPad in your practice can save time. You can manage your email and calendar all from your iPad. There are apps that allow you to access files from your computer.

There are many benefits to using the iPad for your firm. The Lawyers Mutual Lending Library offers a book that goes into more detail about all the ways the iPad can help your practice. “iPad in One Hour for Lawyers”  by Tom Mighell will break down the benefits of using an iPad in your practice without bogging you down with a bunch of tech jargon.

We are also pleased to offer “iPad Apps in One Hour for Lawyers” by Tom Mighell. The iPad is an effective practice tool, but works best with the right apps. The right apps can take your practice to the next level.

Some apps that may be helpful for you and your practice are:

  • Dragon Dictation
  • TrialPad
  • TranscriptPad
  • Keynote

Check out our lending library for more information on how to take your practice to the next level.
