Pat O’Donnell’s article “8 Myths About Corporate Software,” is a must-read for lawyers in corporate legal departments that have been slow to adopt the use of technology.
While it may surprise some to see that this type of article still has to be written in 2003, many corporate legal departments are dropping the ball on easy, solid technology efforts that would control legal costs, manage projects and law firms, and generally improve their work and results.
Because the return on investment for technology in corporate legal departments can usually be shown fairly easily, more legal departments should be questioning the slow adoption approach.
