ABA TECHSHOW 2019

ABA TECHSHOW 2019 logo

Whether you’re a tech geek or not, you should consider attending the ABA TECHSHOW if you want to make your practice more efficient. It’s not just for lawyers, but for anyone in the legal field. In addition to the dozens of CLE sessions to choose from, you can also visit the EXPO hall and check out products to improve your practice. We discovered my firm’s case management system in the TECHSHOW EXPO hall a few years ago, which then led to the discovery of our document management system and phone system. All were big improvements over our old systems.

Speaking of sessions, I’ll be back in Chicago this year presenting two sessions:

If neither of those topics are for you, check out the 2019 schedule for a complete listing. I always have a hard time narrowing down the choices, although I plan to hit most all of the sessions in the Mac Track. A few of the sessions I have my eyes on:

In addition to learning from Heidi and Julie, I’m looking forward to seeing other topnotch speakers like Brett Burney of Apps in Law, David Sparks of Mac Power Users and MacSparky, Jeff Richardson of iPhone JD, and many more.

If you attend, please say hello.


Recently Published – “How to Keep Your Mobile Workspace Secure: 12 Tips to Follow”


The Legal Intelligencer recently published an article I wrote, “How to Keep Your Mobile Workplace Secure: 12 Tips to Follow.” You’ll need to register for an account to read the article, but you’ll get to read five free articles every 30 days.

The Legal Intelligencer is the oldest daily law journal published in the United States, and serves the Philadelphia area. It is available in print and online.

 

Update: the article also was picked up by Legaltech News, a national sister publication to the Legal Intelligencer.


Upcoming Publication – “How to Navigate Cybersecurity in 2018”

The Pennsylvania Bar Association publishes the Pennsylvania Lawyer magazine six times a year. The magazine, which has a circulation of approximately 25,000, has published one of my articles, “How to Navigate Cybersecurity in 2018,” in the March edition. The article covers tips a law firm can take to protect itself from cyber threats.

If you’re a Pennsylvania Bar Association member, look for the magazine in your mailbox. The publication is also distributed to the news media and libraries.


Lawyers Can’t Secretly Track Emails, Illinois Bar Says →

Mindy L. Rattan writing for Big Law Business:

Bar panels in at least four jurisdictions now say it is unethical to use “web bugs” or other email tracking software to monitor how and when recipients review and circulate emails and other electronic documents.

With some email apps offering read receipts, email tracking is pretty easy for anyone to set up. Many people, lawyers included, probably enable it without second thought. Something to have on your radar. UPDATE: In Illinois at least, certain types of read receipts are acceptable.
