Practical Paralegalism’s Recommended Reading This Week

One of the many reasons that I blog for paralegals is to share information relevant to our profession. There are hundreds of new articles posted every week on the Internet, but once a week I will try to break them down into a half dozen or so “don’t miss” articles focusing on legal news, practice tips and technology – and a good laugh or two.

Here’s this week’s recommended reading:

How I Know You’re Going to Succeed from Divorce Discourse. Here’s another strong argument for using social media to be a “life long learner.” Even if you don’t practice family law (or even work in a law firm), Lee Rosen’s blog is a must for your RSS reader.

“Digital Life After Death: Social Media and Your Digital Content Post Mortem” from Social Media Law Student. No one wants to think about it, but this post has some good ideas for recording your last wishes digitally, and discusses who owns your digital content after your death.

“Could the Web Run Out of Addresses by 2010?” from Mashable. As if we don’t have enough to worry about…

“Confessions of a Dinosaur Going Paperless” from Lawyerist. Give this to your boss if he’s married to the idea that you can’t practice law without piles of paper.

“Auto-Sealing Insulated Mug Keeps Your Drink Toasty, Won’t Spill” from Lifehacker. I have a weakness for travel mugs and devices that prevent drinks from spilling on my keyboards. Hello, Santa?

“Judge Denies Wrongdoing: Says He Was Only There for the Soup” from Lowering the Bar. I, too, like chicken soup – but not this much.

Finally, in the courtroom drama shocker of the week, the year – and maybe the decade, check out this video from The Victorious Opposition. You might never, ever again set a file down on a table in court.

Did you read an article this week that you think paralegals should see? I’d love it if you would share the link with us.
