Legal technologists often recommend automation for lawyers, so they can use their valuable time practicing law rather than on data entry. In this Special Report, Jared Correia interviews Heidi Alexander, Joseph Bahgat, John Mayer, Larry Port, Jack Newton, and Andrew LeGrand, and presenters at ABA TECHSHOW 2016. They have a few laughs while giving listeners some quick tips on how to get started, even if they are beginners in automation. From using the cloud to text expansion, you will leave this podcast with a new trick for efficiency and a smile on your face.
