[Thoughtful Legal Management] Legal Technology Education Goes National
On Friday Oct 4, 2013 a unique event will occur in Canada’s legal community. For the first time there will be a Canadian Legal Technology conference that will be accessible right across the country, courtesy of the ability to webcast all tracks and sessions concurrently (except for the noon keynote that will be recorded and put up for viewing later due to technical restraints).

[Compujurist] In Memory of Ross Kodner, A Legal Technology Pioneer
My friend Ross Kodner passed away at the much too young age of 52 on July 29, 2013. I had planned on posting a memorial to him much earlier but the Milwaukee Bar Association asked if I would pen a memorial for Ross to appear in their October 1, 2013 newsletter. I didn't think it was appropriate to post my memorial here before the MBA published so I held off until today.
[Law Technology Today] iOS 7: What You Should Know
Yes, I was one of the many Apple fanatics that downloaded iOS 7 on all my devices the day it was released.  Chances are that, since you are reading this, you too have downloaded iOS 7.  After my update to iOS 7 was complete, it was as if I had a brand new device in my hands.  At first I was skeptical of the new thin fonts and candy color scheme, but the style soon grew on me (maybe those florescent colors are reminiscent of my childhood; I’m a product of the ‘80s) and now I can hardly recall...

[Avoid a Claim] Monthly fraud summary for September 2013
The month of August saw a lower number of new fraud posts (11) though we received more emails than in August (297, up from 209). Many lawyers were reporting the same few frauds, which seemed to have a wider reach than normal. 65% of the emails this month came from the U.S., 27% from Ontario, 2% from elsewhere in Canada and 6% from overseas. Here is the latest that map showing where emails to ‘fraudinfo@lawpro.ca’ orginated. (click to enlarge) Here are the email fraud posts we did...
[Avoid a Claim] Commercial debt collection scam using the names Viktor Gustaf and Aptilo Networks AB
Two Ontario lawyers have notified us that they received an email from the purported Viktor Gustaf of Aptilo Networks AB looking to retain them with regards to a commercial debt collection. This is a classic bad cheque scam that presents as legal matter requiring the assistance of a lawyer. In this scam lawyers will be duped into wiring real funds from their trust accounts after depositing a fake cheque received as payment from the debtor (who is part of the fraud). See our Confirmed Fraud Page...
