One of the many reasons that I blog for paralegals is to share information relevant to our profession. There are dozens of excellent news articles and blog posts published every day on the Internet, but once a week I’ll try to break them down into a half dozen or so “don’t miss” articles focusing on legal news, practice tips and technology.
Here’s this week’s recommended reading:
I’m including two articles about booking appointments online, “Book Appointments Online”
and “Digital Doodad – Appointment Setting”
from The Legal Connection
, since they discuss different online scheduling software. I’d love to hear how many of your offices are scheduling appointments and meetings via the Internet, and which services you like best.
reminds us that our local community colleges have a wealth of low-cost, easily accessible classes (including online offerings) to help keep our skills up-to-date, especially in the fast-changing area of technology.
“Nook is Coming: Barnes & Noble’s Kindle Killer”
makes me wonder if our grandchildren will know what a book or a newspaper looks like, but doesn’t keep me from lusting after an e-reader anyway. I’d be happy to curl up with a Nook. Hello, Santa?
Finally, the two legal news stories that tied for made-me-laugh-out-loud this week illustrate the triumph of one man’s unchecked ego and another man’s bizarre mechanical ingenuity over good old-fashioned common sense.
“La-Z-Boying While Intoxicated”
from Legal Blog Watch
is about an innovative fellow who pimped his recliner, “powering it with a converted lawnmower engine and adding headlights, a small steering wheel, a stereo and cup” and drove it straight from a bar into a parked car.
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.
