Want to learn how to use your iPad as a real productivity tool in your everyday practice, but can’t attend the entire ISBA Solo and Small Firm Conference? Then join us Thursday morning for this stand-alone pre-conference workshop, open for registration to all attorneys, but free to Solo & Small Firm Conference registrants!*
The iPad has rapidly gone from being a device used to read books, listen to music or play games, to a real productivity tool that lawyers can use in their everyday practice. Attorneys are increasingly using the iPad to revise/draft documents, conduct legal research, manage email, calendaring, and even use it in the courtroom for presentations. The iPad’s slim, sleek lightweight design – combined with its versatility and power – makes it an amazing paperless tool for any attorney. In this session, the speaker demonstrates the many ways lawyers can use the iPad, including: review and revise Word and PDF documents; manage documents in a folder structure; manage and annotate depositions; show PowerPoint presentations; present evidence at hearings and in trial; dictate letters, memos and notes; and use as a portable scanner.
