It was not that many years ago, after Lexis and Westlaw came on the scene, that many attorneys were heard to say “I don’t trust computer-based legal research,” and, “I like to hold books in my hands and spread books in front of me on a table.” Is there any attorney today who would like to go back to the paper-based law library days, or who thinks that form of legal research is more efficient?

Probably not, but there are those who are just as behind the times when it comes to the recent emergence of tablet-based computing as a tool for lawyers. Desktop and laptop computers are giving way to tablet computing, led by the iPad, and the numerous applications (apps) that are specifically being designed for the legal profession or that are easily adaptable to the practice of law. These devices and applications are game changing in their impact.
