On this edition of Law Technology Now, host Monica Bay welcomes Andrew Adkins III, Director of the University of Florida’s Legal Technology Institute, to talk about the recent case/practice management survey conducted by the Legal Technology Institute. Monica and Andy discuss why small firms tend to be resistant to this technology, how it can increase profitability and productivity and what managing partners need to know.
Why are lawyers — especially small firm attorneys so resistant to case/practice management software? Why do they rely more on Microsoft’s Outlook than legal-specific tools to run their law offices? Andrew Adkins III, director of the University of Florida’s Legal Technology Institute knows the answers, which start with “There’s no Holy Grail” — i.e., there is no single software “solution” that will do everything for everybody. Join Andrew Adkins and Monica Bay for the March 2008 edition of “Law Technology Now!”
