Practical Paralegalism’s Recommended Reading This Week

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)

“Six Tips to Get Past Job Search Rejection” (Monster)

“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!”

Crunch and Share Your Numbers Online for Free with Cloud-Based Spreadsheets” (Business Hacks)

“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.

Favorite Practical Paralegalism post from this week last year: “Resume Objectives Which Make You Go Hmmm”
