Have you ever heard of “tech law”? If you have it’s probably because it’s one of the most popular law practices today. The boom of startups in the 1990s, where anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit and a computer would begin an internet business, brought this practice to the forefront. Tech law keeps you and your information protected in the big, unknown world of the internet.
The world of technology can be a confusing trail of “I don’t know’s” that seem to be more confusing every day. How many of us actually look into the terms and conditions when we sign up for a social media platform? How do these companies make money from you signing up for a free service? There are many questions that seem too daunting to even ask. This is where tech law comes in to serve you and all of your questions. There are many things put in place by tech laws that protect users and their information from these big tech companies from extorting.
There is also the other side of technology in how there are technologies created to help lawyers automate certain processes. Part of what is spurring the technology revolution in law is the digitization of case law.
The 2017 Law Firm Flexibility Benchmarking Survey found that 64.7% of law firms allow their lawyers to telecommute. Setting up unified communication tools enable lawyers to work remotely while diversifying the ways they communicate with clients and each other.
