First, the American Bar Association recently published 2 books ideal for lawyers seeking to learn how to put their iPads to use: “iPad in One Hour for Lawyers” and “iPad Apps in One Hour for Lawyers.” Both books were written by Tom Mighell and are available for purchase at the American Bar Association’s website.
There are also a number of blogs devoted to lawyers and their iPads, including: 1) Tablet Legal, a blog written by attorney Josh Barrett (no longer being updated but provides a wealth of information in its archives), 2) iPad Notebook, a blog written by Justin Kahn, an attorney and Adjunct Professor at the Charleston School of Law, 3) iPad 4 Lawyers, a blog written by Tom Mighell, author of the two books listed above, and 4) Legal iPad, which is one of my blogs.
Two other blogs are worth mentioning as well, since even though not devoted solely to iPads, they provide a wealth of information about iPads for lawyers: 1) iPhone JD, written by attorney Jeff Richardson and 2) Trial Technology, a blog written by trial consultant Ted Brooks.
Another great resource which should not be overlooked is the Macs in Law Offices (MILO) online Google group.. Although this online forum originally started as a place for lawyers to discuss the use of Macintosh computers in their law practices, over time it has morphed into a forum dedicated to the discussion of topics of interest to lawyers who use any type of Apple product in their law offices, including iPads.
At MILO you’ll find a very engaged, knowledgeable, and friendly group of lawyers and technology consultants who provide a wealth of useful information. And, if you enjoy participating in MILO, then you’ll love MILOfest, an offshoot project of the message board which is a conference devoted to lawyers who use Apple products.
