The ABA Law Practice Management Section is well known for it's vast library of published resources, including magazines, ezines, and books. The Lawyer's Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies, by Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell, is one of the best. The authors, both lawyers and highly respected legal technologies, put their collaborative efforts together to provide the reader with everything from A to Z about how legal professionals can work together more efficiently and effectively.
How do you work with others? Most lawyers use the telephone and email to collaborate, but technology provides much more highly productive tools to make this job easier and more efficient. In this world of Internet applications, Web 2.0 technologies, and the newly minted "Internet golf course," lawyers are striving to find alternative ways to work with clients and counsel.
The book not only explains how lawyers currently collaborate, but provides in an easy-to-read format how to get from your current methods to more sophisticated, technology-driven methods, such as document collaboration (including a detailed explanation of meta data), instant messaging, online meetings, and collaboration platforms such as Intranets and Extranets.
The best part is the last part - Tips and Techniques that are tried and true. If you work with other professionals, this book is an outstanding resource on how to work better and smarter.
