Law Practice Management

Lawyerist LAB

Law Practice Matters – A blog “Law Practice Matters is about legal technology and law practice management for solo practitioners and small law firms. There is a particular emphasis on mobile technology, cloud computing, and Apple products, reflecting the author’s often frustrated belief that technology should ‘just work’ and then get out of the way.”

Business Skill Development

Skillshare – “A community marketplace for learners.” A resource to take (or teach) local or online courses on a variety of topics, including culinary arts, crafts, entrepreneurship, and lifestyle. The local courses are taught in New York City or San Francisco. I not only found the courses on this web site to be extremely relevant (I use the courses more for career development, but there are many other topics) and accessible (i.e., minimal time commitment, close to where I live), but also the web site itself to be very well designed. It is very easy to navigate. It allows you to sign up to receive email alerts about future classes you are interested in taking. It provides links about the teachers as a “trust” meter. In short, this is one of my favorite web sites.

JD Supra – A resource to help lawyers market themselves: it “allows lawyers, law firms, and legal professionals to publish and distribute their work online to a wide audience.” Includes a list of 750 lawyers (and legal professionals) to follow on Twitter.
