In this special issue, Law Practice celebrates the spirit of ABA TECHSHOW® by giving you a bounty of legal technology tips. For our format, we’ve taken a cue from the conference’s popular “60 Tips in 60 Minutes” sessions. The reason is simple: Without fail, these fast-paced sessions are always among the most highly rated at the conference because they are packed with practical nuggets of information. A tip might show you a simple way to trim expenses, connect more easily with clients or avoid an ethics trap. Whatever it’s about, you listen and you get it and you put the tip to use the very next day. In this issue, ABA TECHSHOW speakers and a few favorite writers bring you up to speed on some of the hottest trends and topics.
