Technology in Corporate Law Departments – The Current State of the Art

A fascinating article by Ashby Jones in Corporate Counsel reports on the results of a survey on what technologies corporate law departments sre using. While I’m frightened by the implications of the findings of any article that starts out, “The once hidebound law firm has finally gotten hip to technology,” the article suggests that some corporate law departments make many law firms look like technological juggernauts. Three words for corporate law departments on the subject of technology – Dupont Legal Model. My set of resources on “Client Driven Technologies” has more than a few good ideas for corporate law departments. See http://www.denniskennedy.com/clientdriven.htm. One of my areas of consulting is precisely this field and I spoke on this topic at the ABA TechShow and would be happy to speak on this subject again.
