Litigation Trends Article

The May/June issue of the ABA’s Law Practice Management Magazine has been posted to the web. Among other excellent articles about the use of technology in trial practice is a fascinating collection of short essays on leading trends in litigation. The list of authors is an honor roll of some of the best thinkers and doers in legal technology and it’s flattering that I was included in this group. I talk about client-driven technologies (my current favorite topic), but you will also see Marc Lauritsen on smart technologies, Sharon Nelson and John Simek on electronic evidence, Mark Tamminga on “transparency,” and Wells Anderson on virtual court rooms, to name a few. Very cool stuff, even if you don’t do litigation, and essential reading for litigators. It’s also interesting to notice multiple mentions of CaseMap by this group of experts.
