It has been Collaboration Week for lawyers. It's not like the ABA or Congress designated it as such, but that still seems to be the case.
The "week" actually started last Friday when Attorney At Work published Tech Tips: Collaborating Well With Others. The post noted:
For this edition of Friday Tech Tips, we asked the practice management technology experts: “What’s your best tech tip for collaborating well with others?” Here’s good advice from Jim Calloway, Andrea Cannavina, Jared Correia, Darla Jackson, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell, Catherine Sanders Reach, Deborah Savadra and John Simek.
But wait, there is more!
This week our Digital Edge podcast was released. The topic is The Case for Collaboration and our guests were Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell. They co-authored The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies: Smart Ways to Work Together, Second Edition, which was recently released by the ABA. Since Dennis and Tom also have their own long-running podcast, the Kennedy-Mighell Report, no one will be surprised that our end result was a fun and easy-to-listen to podcast.
Today's collaboration tools provide new opportunities for lawyers--if they take the time to learn about them.
