There's been a lot of speculation as to whether iPads, smartphones, and other devices will ever play an active role in the practice of law.
While most attorneys may own these devices, many are unsure how to actually use them to help their practice. However, as apps for lawyers continue to be developed (and improved upon), we may be entering a time of transition as these devices and their apps go from novelty to practicality.
Recently, the American Arbitration Association (AAA) recently released its ADR app for lawyers. Unlike most other apps developed for your tablet or smartphone, this app actually provides some utility for lawyers involved in arbitration, mediation, and other forms of alternate dispute resolution.
