Last month, the Sony Corporation announced that it had partnered with Worldox to launch its newest digital device, known as Sony Digital Paper. The new device is not a traditional tablet or e-reader (although many tech reviews seem to mistakenly lump it into that category), but rather a digital replacement for paper.

When lawyers and law firm staff are asked about their biggest frustrations as it relates to productivity and job efficiency, managing volumes of paper is often at the top. Paper files have become problematic in today’s technologically driven law firms. People often spend hours of unproductive time filing away and then, later, looking for paper. Paper files can only be in one place at a time; there is no sharing or collaborating on a paper file; you cannot search a paper file, you can only flip paper, one page at a time.

Filing is also one of the most dreaded tasks in a law firm – and it often gets put off. So, even if you have found the file, there is a good chance the paper you need isn’t there. And then finally…what do we do with all those files once we are done with them? Space is not cheap – at your own office or at a storage facility.

If you find text formatted the way you like in a document, you can easily replicate it elsewhere using the Format Painter button in the Clipboard group on the Home ribbon.

This is particularly useful when you have some rogue paragraphs which are formatted incorrectly.

Several days ago it was widely reported that all version of the Internet Explorer web browser from Microsoft from version 6 to version 11 (the current version) were vulnerable to a new and serious zero day exploit. The exploit would allow an attacker to gain control of a computer and have the same rights as the currently logged-in user.

Each year, the Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) brings together the best-of-the-best in the legal management profession at its Annual Conference & Exposition. This is where you can network, gain actionable information on your toughest challenges and explore new products and solutions - all under one roof.
