When I first started practicing, I remember how difficult it was to find and share my research or documents (excuse me… “precedent”). Not to date myself, but the word “blog” wasn’t even universally accepted as a word yet and now there are over 156 million public blogs according to Wikipedia – scary, I know.
With so many new and evolving ways to create, share and discover information we decided to go straight to one of the biggest wave makers in this social revolution for a debrief on what attorneys need to know. Hello Google!
Our friends at Google have graciously agreed to host our next Sociable Lawyer Meetup here in our hometown of San Francisco this week. The Google team will do a deep dive into a few of their favorite apps and will share some tips on how each can be used in a law practice. Specifically, we’ll be going over:
- Google Docs – create and share documents
- Google Plus Profiles – being a solo doesn’t mean not being social
- Google Scholar – great free research tools
- Google Places – an impressively easy way to be found and find others
Space is limited for the event and we’re almost full. If you happen to be in the Bay Area this Thursday, May 24th, and you’re a Sociable Lawyer (or want to be) you should come on by.
For more event details and to sign up, check out our Meetup page. We’ll have some heavy appetizers and it wouldn’t be a proper meetup without drinks of course.
See you there!
