The new issue of Law Practice Today has a Paperless Law Practice theme. It qualifies as a "must read." Over the years I have watched as this concept evolved from futuristic to mainstream. Now I am to the point where I believe that the paperless (or as I prefer "digital") law practice is to the point were it is necessary and not optional. To that end, my contribution to this issue is "The Paperless Office as a Risk Management Enterprise," which was also published in the Oklahoma Bar Journal this month.
On a personal note, I've been involved for the last year in an effort to revitalize Law Practice Today under the able leadership of Wendy L. Werner. Wendy has worked tirelessly as the unpaid volunteer Editor in Chief of Law Practice Today. She has done a great job. I know from my bar association work that most lawyers do not know of or appreciate the thousands of hours that volunteers put in to improve and sustain our legal profession. If you've noticed the improvement of Law Practice Today over the last year, feel free to drop Wendy a note of thanks. The new leaderhip of the ABA Law Practice Management Section has decided to replace most of the LPT board, including Wendy. I think the new volunteers will find that they have the proverbial tough act to follow.
