Monica Bay, editor-in-chief of Law Technology News and the authority on all things LegalTech, spent some time with us catching up after her Tuesday panel, “What I Hate About Technology.”
Here are three things the panel hates (and loves) about technology:
- Everyone thinks they’re an expert (which usually leads to someone who doesn’t want to listen)
- It never works in the manner it’s supposed to work in order to get my stuff done
- “I’ve never seen that problem before.”
- Technology makes painful tasks painless
- It saves time so I can focus my attention on things other than technology
- I can connect from anywhere; it allows us to be better at our jobs and more efficient.
We’ve learned that technology is important, indeed. But in the context of the current economic state, Monica stresses the importance of a law firm’s adaptability. The latest issue of Law Technology News features several stories that offer advice to legal professionals on how to stay strong and adaptable in these tough times, including “Can Technology Thrive in a Bad Economy?” by Michelle Mahoney and George Rudoy; and “Five Tips for IT to Survive the Plunge” by Ross Kodner.
Monica outlines her compelling case for how law firms can and should ride out the storm in this video interview for WestBlog:
