Blade Runner 2018: The Future of Legal Computing
Venue:

MILOfest/Mac Track Legal started 10 years ago, when the iPhone was barely a device worth carrying (apps had just been released). Since then, mobile computing has grown from the novelty of checking email to the full-fledged capability to run a practice on a blank-screened tablet. Where are we going next? How can you future-proof your practice for the next 10 years.

1:20pm-2:20pm
Task Management on iOS
Mark Metzger

Lawyers all have “things to do”. Keeping track of those things, including items that you have delegated to others, has created a cottage industry of apps and strategies. It can be confusing as all get out. Tech guru & certified practice management coach Mark Metzger will help you make heads and tails of it all so you can increase productivity and profitability in your practice.

Sharing & Collaboration On-The-Go
Venue:

It is extremely rare to find the practice that runs completely without input from, and collaboration with, others. Whether yours is a transactional practice or a litigation practice, you likely have to share your work with other…humans. Working exclusively (or mostly) on an iPad or iPhone can make that a challenge. Here you will learn tricks and tips to making collaboration a breeze.

10:30am-11:45am
Deep App Dive: Shortcuts for iOS
Venue:

Apple’s newest operating system (iOS 12) for the iPhone and iPad will incorporate technology from the awesome Workflow app, in a new application called “Shortcuts”. Shortcuts makes it possible for you to say to your phone “Lumos Maxima” and turn the flashlight on (for you Harry Potter fans), but it is capable of so much more.

1:00pm-1:50pm
Writing To Be Read On Mobile
Venue:

More and more, court filings are required to be done electronically, and most of our “reading” is done on our devices. Even judges are known to highlight and track briefs on iPads…so what are the best practices for writing meant to be read on a mobile devices? There’s an art to this that speaks both to effective marketing, and persuasive advocacy. This session will help show the way.

2:10pm-3:10pm
Practical Mindfulness: The How & What to Excel In Practice & Your Life
Mark Metzger
Venue:

Two years ago, Mark Metzger introduced the MacTrack Legal audience to mindfulness as a practice (and life) advantage. Most of that session laid the groundwork for why this habit is effective, and urged everyone to try it in their own lives. This session takes the next step in teaching you practical tips to incorporating a mindfulness practice, including common obstacles and how to overcome them. Interested in being happier and more effective in your day-to-day life? This session is for you.

3:30pm-3:50pm

Alykhan “AJ” Jetha
Venue:

Marketcircle works so that it is largely a de-centralized company - but that comes with challenges.

Going “iPad-Only”: The Essential Tools
Victor J. Medina

Bring your own iPad to this session because there will be lots of practical tips for you to use immediately.

Time Management For Lawyers

Bjorn
