In the past two years I’ve given several presentations on ‘Digital Workflow,’ or how to make your law practice less dependent on paper. Whenever I give this talk the room is always packed with people who want to know the step-by-step process of becoming more digital.
About six months ago Dane Ciolino and I were tapped to give this presentation together, which was great because, over the years, Dane and I have often had lunch together to talk about our ‘paperless law practices’ and share ideas on how to make things better. So presenting together was a lot of fun for us, and (from the feedback we got) entertaining and informative for the audience.
This summer Dane and I taught a ‘virtual class’ together at Loyola Law School. The class was about practical lawyering in the digital age, and it was done purely over the Internet. When the class was announced there was a rush to sign up, but we limited the class to 20 students so that we could ensure quality and work out any kinks without too much chaos. Everything went pretty smoothly and, once again, the class was very well received.
It occurred to us that there’s a big demand for this kind of information, and it’s not really being presented very often around Louisiana. So, we decided to take the bull by the horns and put on our own CLE Seminar. The idea is to create a group of basic, intermediate, and advanced sessions. And to present them on a fairly regular basis. We’re going to start with a 3 hour session on December 12th, in the morning. For more information, and to register for the seminar, click here.
This will not be a traditional CLE seminar, although it will give you 3 hours of credit, including an hour for Ethics and an hour for Professionalism. We will give you useful information, presented in an engaging way.
