Web Seminar

Often considered a cloud tool, a desktop tool, and a communication tool, Office 365 has both risks and benefits associated with its use by law firms. Learn about this new hybrid approach, and how to leverage its new subscription and multi device model of licensing. You will learn how to communicate and collaborate better with clients, colleagues, and the courts. We will even discuss how Office 365 compares to Google’s G Suite (aka Google Apps and Google for Work) for a law firm.

Web Seminar

Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have become part of every lawyer’s daily life, and they can be helpful tools for expanding your professional presence and marketing your practice, as well as valuable investigative tools. But the same ethical rules that govern lawyers’ conduct also apply to their use of social media, and that can raise some concerns for lawyers in their use of these tools.
