PERHAPS the most dramatic arena to witness the development of legal technology is the courtroom. From animation, to transcript tools, to discovery, the trial experience is changing.
Last month, Robert Ambrogi (LTN's Web Watch columnist and editorial director of the National Law Journal) and I flew to Seattle and San Antonio. We visited Microsoft Corp. and Applied Discovery and met with VersusLaw Inc. and Pacific Legal Litigation Support Services. Next was the NLJ Litigation Summit. Both trips were highly educational -- especially electronic discovery -- as you will see in this issue. What you won't find, however, is our regular columns by Ambrogi and Anthony Paonita. They are both taking well-earned vacations and will be back next month.
Also this month, please help us welcome Jay Twitchell to our LTN staff as our new assistant editor.
