More Productive Legal Research by pendragon The Internet is changing how lawyers do legal research, an integral part of practice. There are lots of ways that lawyers can make the research go faster, and to use their time better. This article appeared in the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Bar Reporter magazine in July 2003. Titled “Make Online Research Time More Productive”, it covers topics like research tools – faster browsers and toolbars – and resources to speed up and tighten up your law firm’s Internet connection.
I improve information access and lead information teams. My books on finding information and managing it and practicing law using cloud computing reflect my interest in information management, technology, law practice, and legal research. I've been a library director in Canada and the US, as well as directing the American Bar Association's Legal Technology Resource Center. I speak and write frequently on information, technology, law library, and law practice issues.
