practicelaw and mypractice are kicking off a new series today with the first “Off the Clock” meeting at a MSBA member’s home office in Eagan. Off the Clock is a series of periodic meetings at offices, bars, and coffee shops, laptops in tow, with conversation, fun, and a hands-on and down-to-earth approach to tech issues for practicing attorneys. No talking heads and no talking over your head. We actually consider it so informal we hope you forget for the moment that you are an attorney.
Our first session promises to bring up issues with establishing a Google profile, working with Google Apps, and looking at the Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner (which seems to be the only scanner to use for solo and small firm attorneys). We’ll also tackle how to use Adobe Acrobat to add Bates stamps to documents and, with time, take on any tech issues that rise to the surface. After today’s session, we have another one scheduled for October 15, at Common Roots Cafe in South Minneapolis, known for its great food and Surly beer on tap.
Interested? Find more information about it on mypractice, the MSBA’s professional networking site (open to Minnesota legal professionals). Or stay tuned to this space as we announce more details and upcoming sessions.
