Overcoming E-mail Overload: Techniques and Tips for Avoiding Malpractice, Streamlining, and Improving Effectiveness

A 90-minute Teleconference and Live Audio Webcast
Thursday, July 20, 2006
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Eastern

The use of e-mail in our law practices provides enormous opportunities to save time and money while facilitating contact with clients and the courts. It gives firms of all sizes an opportunity to practice at a higher level of speed and effectiveness. However, ineffective use of e-mail can lead to problems with the same clients and courts, from lost time to malpractice suits. Start e-mailing in a way that enhances, not hinders, your law practice.
