The Modern Lawyer: How to make iPads and apps work for you

If you are inclined to use a tablet computer to do your work on the go, there are a couple of steps you must keep in mind.


  1. Apps are what is needed to make your smartphone smart and unique.Im fond of app creating and find it really helpful to use site like Snappii where i can build apps in minutes.

  2. Former Law Student

    The software for Black’s Law Dictionary is unusable, or at least it was when I bought it in 2008. Don’t buy it. It’s impossible to look up words efficiently with it, especially ones grouped under a lead word, such as “quit claim deed” under “deed” or the like. Buy a few copies of the real thing and keep one at home and one at the office.

    I highly recommend Google Scholar, which is great for looking up Minnesota cases quickly and easily. Unlike Lexis or Westlaw, you can search any way you like, by case name, citation, key facts, etc. And you don’t need a separate app to use it, just a browser.

    Same goes for http://www.revisor.mn.gov for Minnesota statutes, and practicelaw.org for forms and other things. Both are very good and neither require a separate app.

  3. Thanks for these professional applications.

    In business/productivity app, I’d like to recommend a great one which integrated an interesting concept; saving time from your notes. This app, Beesy, generates automatically ToDo lists from a smart note taking. Also, the advantage is you can easily generate professional minutes from your notes and send them by email. Besides, you can browse your ToDo by actions,projects or people. You save a lot of time at meetings.

    I strongly recommend Beesy for people which often have meetings and want to appreciate them again 😉

    Great post
