Apps for Lawyers

By now we’ve all become used to seeing lawyers with Blackberries and iPhones. But for me at least, an iPad in a law firm still merits a second look. As iPads become work tools for lawyers, there’s an opportunity for librarians to get involved, particularly in navigating the world of apps. There are a few resources which I’ve found helpful. My favorite is the Mobile Applications for Law Students and Lawyers Guide maintained by UCLA’s Hugh & Hazel Darling Law Library. Well-curated and sensibly organized, this guide can you help you pull off the illusion that you’ve totally got a handle on this whole app thing. Mobile Apps for Law is a new product from an old friend (Infosources Publishing). It’s fee-based, but reasonably priced right now with a $25/year introductory rate. If you like using 15th century technologies to read about 21st century innovations, pick up a copy of iPad in One Hour for Lawyers published by the ABA and available (as far as I can tell) only in paper. There are a number of legal blogs which cover law-related use of tablets and iPads. This Attorney at Work post is a good jumping off point to start exploring.
