Press Release

Legal Assistant Today Announces
5th Annual Technology Survey Results

April 27, 2006 (Costa Mesa, Calif.) — Mobile technology is allowing more paralegals to work at home or on the road, despite an overall drop in daily use of legal technology compared to last year, according to Legal Assistant Today’s 5th Annual Technology Survey results, which are available in the May/June 2006 issue.

 As early as 10 years ago, it was a pipe dream to be able to work from the comfort of one’s home. Today, thanks to remote access technology such as virtual private networks and extranets, many paralegals no longer have to sacrifice family time for overtime. But the survey results show not all paralegals are capitalizing on technological innovations. About 10 percent fewer paralegals use document management programs daily compared to last year, and only 43 percent of respondents said they use time and billing software daily — more than 4 percent less than 2005.

 Packed with nine pages of charts, graphs and statistics, this year’s technology survey feature includes overall technology use by legal assistants and expanded survey results on paralegal’s use of more than 100 legal support products, applications and software. Additional survey results on freelance paralegal technology use also are included.

 This year’s survey consisted of a four-page questionnaire mailed to a random sampling of 2,000 LAT subscribers across the nation. Final data was compiled from the 12.2 percent of respondents who completely filled out and returned the survey by the Feb. 3, 2006 deadline.

 LAT subscribers receive this annual issue in their subscription package. For subscription information, call (800) 394-2626 or e-mail [email protected]. To purchase only the May/June 2006 issue featuring the technology survey results, contact Robin Mechem at (714) 755-5457. 


 Legal Assistant Today — a national bimonthly publication and the only independent trade magazine geared toward the rapidly expanding needs of the paralegal profession — offers news, practical tips, career advice and substantive feature stories.
