24: Lawyers Using Computers

24, to me, is far and away the best show on television these days and last night ended the great run of season 2. In an inspiring twist for those of us lawyers who see the potential of the use of technology in the practice, a huge tide-turning discovery was made by a high-powered lawyer who worked with a database on his own to find key information. Not associates and paralegals plowing through banker’s boxes of documents, but a major partner working a computer with expertise.
As I said, it was kind of inspring.
