As noted in Bar Leader Weekly, The Chicago Bar Association has a collection of more than 100 on-demand "Law Practice Management and Technology How To…" videos—and now they're available to your bar association, too. The CBA's LPMT Division regularly sponsors live demonstrations of hardware and software geared to legal professionals and focused on their specific needs. Each demonstration (and video) is one hour or less. The videos are hosted in Vimeo, which means they are mobile friendly and can be rewound and forwarded. Access the video library directly, or for more information (including sample disclaimer language, and how to be added to an email list for newly added videos), contact Catherine Sanders Reach.
