Nearly every public and private organization which previously dealt with a lot of paper has been trying to systematically remove it from their operation. Law firms and legal departments are certainly not immune to this economic reality. Most lawyers have had scanners for years but still feel buried in paper. This is because the tools for scanning are only part of the solution. To really solve the problem, you’ll need a lot more than a good scanner. This program lays out the roadmap to follow if you want to unbury yourself, from hardware to software to procedures.

Sick of dealing with all of the paper? Learn how to liberate yourself and your office.
• Rules for backing up client data and addressing security issues

PDFs have become the file format of choice when exchanging documents with other lawyers and clients.
