2009 Legal Technology Trends Article in Law Practice Today Webzine

Let me recommend the new issue of the ABA’s Law Practice Today webzine. Wendy Werner has put together another great issue and I’m sure you’ll find several articles that will make your visit to the webzine worth your while.
This issue also contains my article, “Legal Technology Trends for 2009: The Year of Hunkering Down.
Readers of this blog will know that the legal tech trends article is annual tradition of mine. I also like to do what I did this year and post the first draft of the article on my blog before the article gets published elsewhere. If you are interested in my writing process, you can see how the article evolved a bit before it was published in Law Practice Today.
The article has nine sections:
1. Technology Budgets Get Decimated.
2. Making Do with What You Have or Doing More with Less.
3. The Mobile Phone as Platform.
4. Looking to the Cloud.
5. Using Tech to Get the Word Out and the Money In.
6. Focus on Client-focused Technology.
7. E-Discovery in Still Waters.
8. The Perfect Storm for Collaboration Tools.
9. A Potpourri of Predictions .

I’d enjoy hearing your reactions to the article. Also, we’re collecting questions for the audience Q&A segment of the upcoming episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report podcast. If you have a question about one of the legal tech trends in the article or any other legal tech question you’d like us to try to answer on the podcast, let me know.

    Great post. I love number 4. The cloud is encompassing everyone. I’ve seen how affective the cloud technology can be used in document management, time and billing, etc…Keep up the good work.
