I don’t talk about it much at MacSparky or on the Mac Power Users but over the last several years I’ve spent a lot of time talking to lawyers about the iPad. I spoke to the lawyers at the American Bar Association and even the Federal Judicial College. Judges and lawyers are fascinated with the iPad because it is so perfect for so many of the things we do.
Ernie Svenson, one of my very favorite legal nerds, and I have started an online iPad training seminar for professionals, called, appropriately, Nerdy Professionals. The problem with this type of education is that it is so often terrible. There is a guy sitting behind a desk with some crummy PowerPoint slides behind him. It feels a lot more like watching a hostage video than an opportunity to learn something useful. Ernie and I have some great ideas to make it better and we intend to impress. We are doing our first webinar on March 1, 2013 on iPad basics. We’re planning on doing a whole series of webinars on how we use our iPads to make the other side look bad at the courthouse. If that is your thing, or you know a professional that needs some help getting started with his or her iPad, send them over.
