Are you flummoxed by the newfangled technology that your iPhone or your iPad brings to the table? Are you unsure about what apps to get that might actually be beneficial to your legal practice (no, Angry Birds does not count)? Maybe you should make a notation to attend the iPhone apps CLE, put on by ALI-ABA.
What will the iPhone/iPad CLE entail?
Apparently, the 60 minute CLE will go over various iPhone applications that might be of most use to attorneys. Judging by the bulk of applications available through the App Store, maybe taking a gander at the program might be worth your while - if you have $195 to spend.
The $195 will also include a copy of "iPad in One Hour for Lawyers," which the site says is valued at $34.95, written by Tom Mighell.
The seminar will take place on July 27, between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. Eastern time. The $195 is the same for the telephone seminar and the audio webcast.
Do you need this hour of orientation into useful iPhone and iPad applications?
It could be helpful if you're truly lost in the weeds when it comes to technology. With so many new apps popping up for sale every day, it's difficult to know whether or not having just an hour-long seminar will truly be that useful in the long run, however, as many applications might become outdated rather quickly and replaced by newer, sleeker applications.
Though, like most things based on technology, it would be impossible to be completely up to speed on the newest app offerings. Getting a quick one-hour primer on what apps are useful for attorneys may be something relatively efficient, especially for attorneys who are strapped for time.
If you want to register for the iPhone apps CLE, you should aim to do so as soon as possible. The CLE website says you should register by July 21st if you want to get your free copy of "iPad in One Hour for Lawyers" in time.
