The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
One of the many reasons I blog for paralegals is to share information they may find helpful for professional development (or a much needed laugh during a hectic week working with lawyers). Once a week I try to share links to a half dozen or so articles focusing on legal news, practice tips and technology – plus a good laugh or two. I know it’s been a few weeks since my last “Recommended Reading,” so this week’s list is a little longer with much much shorter (or no) comments:
“Break the law and your new ‘friend’ may be the FBI” (Associated Press) This is a must-read for all legal professionals and their clients.
“Social Media: Access to job opportunities” (Alexandria Times)
“How the iPad will change the world” (Practicing Law in the 21st Century-A Law & Technology Blog) Want to win an iPad? See Alison Doyle’s post “Win an Ipad: SimplyHired What’s Your Dream Job? Contest” but the deadline’s this Friday.
Check out this highly quotable Apple iPad commercial spoof. “HOT TUB!”
“Coming Soon to a Computer Near You: More Free PACER Documents” (Legal Blog Watch)
“Quick Tips to Help Your Law Office Run More Smoothly” (PracticeSmarter)
“Clown Shoes Were Defective, Woman Claims” (Lowering the Bar) I knew there was a reason why I don’t own any clown shoes.
