#91. 2012 Legal Tech Surveys Say . . .

We hear a lot of stories about lawyers using (and not using) technology. It’s always been difficult to get good data on what is actually happening in the ground. The release of results from two major annual surveys about the use of technology by lawyers gives us some data to assess trends and draw conclusions. In this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell take a look at highlights of the 2012 ILTA / Inside Legal Technology Purchase Survey and the 2012 Legal Technology Survey Report from the ABA’s Legal Technology Resource Center, the trends the surveys show, and some practical implications of the survey results.

A tip of the hat to JoAnna Forshee at InsideLegal and to ILTA for putting together the 2012 ILTA/InsideLegal Technology Purchasing Survey and to Joshua Poje of the ABA for his great summary of ten highlights of the 2012 Legal Technology Resource Center survey. Tom Mighell and I will be serving on the Legal Technology Resource Center’s board this year, so I’d appreciate hearing any feedback or ideas you might have for the Legal Technology Resource Center.
