When UberConference came out in 2012, PC World called it the “best conference-call manager yet.” The service has only improved since then, making ease of use its calling card and adding significantly more services for the same low price (free). UberConference can be accessed from a personal computer or by using its Android and Apple compatible apps. Readers may sign up using Google, LinkedIn, or email accounts. From there, the one minute tutorial tells users everything they need to know about, inviting conference call participants, scheduling calls, and how to use the service during a call.

Casetext’s New Features Help You More Easily Get to the Essence of Case – Robert Ambrogi’s LawSites

by Robert Ambrogi

***

Casetext is on a journey. And it just took another big step along the path.

The journey is to develop a free legal research platform that is as robust and useful as a paid site. The big step is a new case-reading page that adds features that make it easier to quickly understand what a case is about, whether the case is important, and why.

Casetext launched the new features on March 23. Now, when you read a case on Casetext, the page includes several elements that enable you to quickly get to the nub of the case and discover how other courts and commentators viewed the case. These elements are set forth more fully here.

EFiling – N.Y. State Courts

Chapter 237 of the Laws of 2015 authorizes the Chief Administrative Judge to implement new mandatory e-filing programs in most classes of cases in counties throughout New York State. Under the legislation, the Chief Administrative Judge may not implement new mandatory e-filing programs in any county without first consulting with and considering public comment solicited from the following organizations and persons: the County Clerk of such county, the organized bar, institutional and not-for-profit legal service providers, attorneys assigned pursuant to County Law Article 18-b, attorneys who regularly appear in proceedings that have been or may be affected by e-filing programs, and any other persons deemed appropriate.

This page has been established for the purpose of posting for public review all comments submitted in connection with the proposed implementation of new mandatory e-filing programs, and for posting of public comments submitted by persons affected by any existing e-filing programs or by recommendations for further legislation relating to e-filing.

Update Your Research And Validate Your Cases With Alternative Citators – MyCase Blog

by Lisa Solomon,

Citators have two main functions. First, they allow you to quickly locate other cases that cite a particular case. Second, they allow you to quickly identify other cases that affect the validity of a particular case.* 

While many consider Shepard’s (from LexisNexis) and KeyCite (from Thomson Reuters, home of WestlawNext) to be the “gold standard” in citators, the former is available only in connection with a Lexis Advance subscription and the latter is available only in connection with a WestawNext subscription. Here are some free alternatives to consider:

Google Docs Gets Outline Tool | Ubergizmo

By Adnan Farooqui 

Google Docs has received a new feature today on the web and on the Android app. The outline tool is displayed in a pane to the left of the page and it features headers for every section of the document. This enables users to jump quickly from section to section without having to scroll through the entire document to get to a particular section of the document.

If you’ve worked with super long documents in Google Docs then you might have been frustrated at times by having to scroll through the entire document. It’s time-consuming and there can certainly be a better way to go about this.

Now there is. With the outline tool it becomes much easy to jump from section to section. It doesn’t matter if you’ve manually applied headers in the document or not. Google Docs will intelligently detect logical divisions in your work and apply the headers which can then be added or removed as necessary.

Email Encryption from Virtru | Encrypted Email Service

VIRTU

SCIENCE

Privacy concerns have become a major issue for Internet users, and the privacy of email is no exception. Every email you send is potentially being profiled by advertisers, screened by government agencies, and perhaps even intercepted by hackers who would like to use your personal information for their own ends. Virtu takes care of all that. The extension, which is tremendously easy to install, works with Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and Outlook to encrypt the emails you want kept private. Using the basic service, which is free, readers may click a single button to turn encryption on. The receiver then gets a message explaining what you have done and how to access the key to decrypt and open the email. While this may sound complicated, the process is actually quite intuitive. Virtu also offers more advanced features for five dollars per month, such as HIPPA compliance and the ability to revoke access to emails that have already been sent. [CNH]
