How the law firms have been evolving into tech-savvy organizations
You know the lawyers and law firm associates as people who have always kept busy reading through all those meticulous paper work and being potentially strong with their papers and documents. We have always visualized a lawyer’s office with a type writer and some assistants ready to go on with short hand notes and abundant volumes of documents and paper works stacked in every desk possible. The cabinets are all over flowing with files and folders from different legal cases. This scenario no longer exists in real time. Even the low profile lawyers who do not have their own offices have moved on to a laptop and smart device to carry forward their business.
Although there are still eminent and expert lawyers who are sticking to their religious practices of reading through the law suits and case file on papers and monotonously maintaining them, more often these people have a young generation of law assistants who do their technology related work for them. At the end of the day, indirectly their law firm and practices have moved forward from the traditional way.
The work any way as reading through cases, law suits, maintaining all the records handy are all similarly and more proficiently done through computer. It is just done more progressively at a faster pace not involving so much of physical labor from any of the law assistants. All the records are maintained in detailed in soft copies which could be easily hyper linked, mailed or texted to the clients in a matter of seconds when necessary. There are lawyers who use cloud storage for effectively storing all their clients’ legal records. The repetitive typing has been completely replaced by word or other smart office application where you could take many number of copies at a time without any hassle. The couriers are no more relied, with emails taking over the instant transmission of messages.
