The Lawyer's Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies: Smart Ways to Work Together
by Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell

Lending Library Number: 102

This first-of-its-kind guide for the legal profession shows you how to use standard technology you already have and the latest "Web 2.0" resources and other tech tools, like Google Docs, Microsoft Office and SharePoint, and Adobe Acrobat, to work more effectively on projects with colleagues, clients, co-counsel and even opposing counsel. In The Lawyer's Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies: Smart Ways to Work Together, well-known legal technology authorities Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell provides a wealth of information useful to lawyers who are just beginning to try these tools, as well as tips and techniques for those lawyers with intermediate and advanced collaboration experience.

Collaboration technologies and tools are the most important current developments in legal technology and are likely to remain so for the foreseeable future. Explained with minimal technical jargon, the book focuses on highly practical and usable ideas that you can put to work straight away.

With practical advice on how to use specific tools and concrete action steps to take, lawyers and law firms at all levels will benefit from working together better.

You'll learn:

  • The basics of collaboration and collaboration tools
  • How to select and implement tools and strategies
  • The best ways to collaborate on documents, cases, transactions, and projects
  • How to collaborate inside and outside the office
  • How to collaborate using tools you already have or own

Technology now makes it easier than ever to work with others—this is the first guide dedicated to the special requirements of the legal world with the practical steps it takes to do it right.
