The Not-To-Be-Missed “Mac Track” at the ABA TECHSHOW on April 11


If you’re hungering for some top-quality legal Mac education, the annual ABA TECHSHOW is the place to be on April 11. This year happens to be the 25th anniversary of ABA TECHSHOW and it’s delivering with a bang.

Four years ago, Reid Trautz convinced the TECHSHOW Planning Board to include two sessions that focused on lawyers using Macs.

Four years later, the “Mac Track” has expanded to a whole day of Mac-focused education, with several more sessions now covering the iPhone and iPad.

This year’s “Mac Track” takes place on Monday, April 11 featuring spectacular sessions taught by some the “rock stars” of the Mac-using legal community:

Going Beyond Microsoft Word on the Mac – 8:30-9:30
Focuses on the tools available on the Mac that give you the most power over text and composition. Victor Medina practices in New Jersey and is the tireless organizer of MILOfest. David Sparks (MacSparky) practices in California and just finished a most helpful tome entitled “Macs at Work.”

How Do You Manage Your Practice on a Mac? – 10:30-11:30
Covers the practice management options for Mac-using lawyers presented by Victor Media and Ben Stevens who practices in South Carolina and is the indomitable author of The Mac Lawyer blog.

Managing Your Documents on a Mac – 2:30-3:30
Provides a ton of tips and options for managing your documents on a Mac. Mark Metzger practices in the Chicago suburbs. Finis Price practices in Louisville, KY and also provides trial consulting through TechnoESQ.

Mac Power Users – 4:30-5:30
The last session where Finis Price, Ben Stevens, and myself (Brett Burney) will cover a slew of “power user” tips that will help you go beyond the basics of using your Mac.

The ABA TECHSHOW is just a few days away so if you use a Mac in your practice now, or are considering using a Mac, you should make all possible attempts to get to Chicago at least for Monday, April 11 so you won’t miss the “Mac Track.”

Not too mention that you’ll also have an amazing opportunities to talk face-to-face to folks from Clio, Rocket MatterDaylite (Marketcirtcle) and more!

That same Monday of TECHSHOW also features the show’s keynote from Larry Lessig, who, by the way, is a huge Mac fan and uses Keynote very effectively in his talks.
