Practice Law in the Cloud
By David Whelan
Canada Law Book, 2013
Do you want to practice law in the cloud? This book is all you need to get started with cloud computing. Canada Law Book describes the book on its website,
Lawyers use technology to practice and increasingly those tools are shifting out of their offices and onto the Internet. In order to take advantage of these tools, lawyers will have to identify how they to balance their professional duties with this new opportunity. As the products they use move to the cloud as Web-based applications or resources, they need to be prepared to understand what is happening and how it will affect their practice.
Practice Law in the Cloud gives readers the context and background so that they can make informed decisions about what elements of their practice should move to the cloud and under what circumstances. It raises their level of awareness and, in the long term, their level of comfort with the change that is happening.
