Solid, actionable data on what law firms are actually doing with technology can be surprisingly hard to find. In the medium and large firm space, the annual Inside Legal / ILTA Legal Technology Purchasing Survey provides detailed and comprehensive data about what law firms have been implementing and planning. The good news is that the 2011 Survey has just been released. In this episode, we dig into this year’s Survey, identify some key trends and developments, and suggest what this data might mean for law firms for the next year.

In response to our last episode, Presentation Tips when Time is Short, we got a great response from a listener, who shared with us some advice he got from his father.  As a preacher, his rule for the length of sermons was, “the mind can absorb what the seat can endure.”  We think the same applies to all presentations.

If you speak on a regular basis, you’ve undoubtedly found yourself in a situation where you have less time left than material to present.  If you’ve ever been in an audience where the speaker is running short on time, you’ve probably suffered as the speaker has tried to cope with (or even ignore) the problem.  In this podcast, we draw from our own speaking experiences to share some of our favorite practical tipes for presenting when time is running out, getting your message out without short-changing or losing your audience, co-panelists and program organizers.

With social media tools like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google+ capturing the lion’s share of attention and discussion, what is the role of blogs for the legal profession in 2011 and beyond? Does it still make sense to start up a new blog or continue an existing blog? Has blogging reached a crossroads? In this episode, we draw from our many years of blogging to talk about where blogs fit into todays’ social media world for lawyers, where blogs might be going, and whether blogs should remain as part of your web presence and communications portfolio.
