The new Windows 10 has received a lot of attention, partly due to the lack of popularity of Windows 8, but legal professionals are notoriously conservative with adopting new technology. Since paralegals will likely be the first law firm employees to use the new operating system, they need to know whether to upgrade and when. Behind the buzz, what are the cold hard facts about Windows 10?

In this episode of the Paralegal Voice, Vicki Voisin interviews lawyer and former paralegal Beverly Michaelis about her transition from paralegal to lawyer, the Limited License Legal Technician (LLLT) issue, and what you need to know before updating to Windows 10.

Topics include:

  • The benefits of being a paralegal before going to law school
  • LLLTs and other solutions for the access to justice issue
  • Windows 8’s confusing interface
  • Reserving your copy of Windows 10 for free
  • New features and functions of the operating system
  • Privacy and data mining
  • Software compatibility
  • Biometric security, a clutter folder, OneDrive sync, and video features
  • How long to wait before downloading and why

Beverly Michaelis is a practice management advisor for the Oregon State Bar Professional Liability Fund. She is a member of the Oregon State Bar, Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, and American Bar Association with over thirty years of experience in the legal field as a lawyer and a paralegal.
