Mapping the Law Firm Strategic Advantage with Analytics

One of my favorite things to do is to explore and try to get lost in the rural areas close to my home. Trusting GPS is a great way to get lost. Therefore, in my last exploration I vowed to restock my car with paper maps. Paper maps let me see the alternates and gives a much fuller understanding of the big picture related to arriving at my destination. In my consulting days I worked on a multitude of projects where we helped our clients create roadmaps for their product delivery. It seems maps are not so unimportant in all that we do, its just the media of the map that may vary. Managing a Law Firm Right Requires A Good Map highlights a conversation with Ed Walters and Michael Sander that maps out the role of data analytics in today's legal practice.

Two Views of New Bots

When both Sarah Glassmeyer and Bob Ambrogi are writing about something, it's worth our attention. Today we offer up first impressions of the new bots released by DoNotPay from these two veteran legal tech authors.
