On May 22nd and 23rd there will be a seminar in New Orleans to help New Orleans area attorneys (well, actually any attorneys in Louisiana who can make it to the seminar) figure out how to use technology to practice law more effectively. Here is the initial press release. (pdf)
I’m involved with this great project, mostly helping Tom O’Connor who is the mastermind behind this seminar. We haven’t finalized the topics yet but the idea is to have 3 sessions per day, and to make the sessions as interactive as possible. We are going to get top notch people from around the country to come talk about things like using Powerpoint effectively in litigation, using Outlook to manage case and contact information and using PDFs in litigation.
We are still looking for sponsors to help underwrite the expense of this two day seminar, which is going to be offered at no or little cost to LSBA members. If you are interested in sponsoring the event or in getting involved let me know. And if you are interested in learning how to use technology in your law practice then mark May 22 -23 on your calendar. The event will be at the Sheraton in New Orleans.
