Up Your Game: Harnessing Technology to Improve Your Practice

Although the past couple of years have been difficult, to say the least, they have shown that we can adapt to changing circumstances. Modern technology and approaches to practicing law that once seemed odd or obscure are now commonplace. Taking stock of the many changes and innovations in technology, the Professional Liability Fund has compiled a wide variety of tips and tricks for how to maximize tech to improve your law firm operations.

PLF Practice Management Attorneys Rachel Edwards, Monica Logan, and Isaac Alley offer advice and ideas to help you use technology to enhance your clients’ experience as well as your own efficiency and productivity, beginning with setting up an effective workspace that accommodates remote work and hearings. Rachel, Monica, and Isaac discuss how to more efficiently utilize current tools such as Microsoft Word, Excel, and Adobe Acrobat Pro, as well as the ever-evolving landscape of client communication through various means such as texting and client portals, ways to protect different types of client data, and factors to consider when assembling your variety of software programs or “tech stack.” Additional topics include automating certain repetitive tasks, using technology to capture time more efficiently and get paid faster, and avoiding cyberattacks and scams.

This program has been approved for 1.5 MCLE practical skills credits.
