E-mail Discussion Groups

for Macintosh-Using Attorneys

If you have an account on a service from which you can send and receive electronic mail over the Internet (e.g. an Internet account from a local internet service provider [ISP]; or an account on an online service such as America OnLine, CompuServe, or Prodigy; or an account on a local electronic bulletin board with e-mail access to the Internet) then you can subscribe to any number of e-mail discussion groups that concern using the Macintosh for the practice of law or the general use of computers in a law office. You will receive messages daily from people who are subscribed to the discussion group. Mail that you send in response to a message that you read, goes out to everyone subscribed to that discussion group. (Unless you specifically send it to only one person.)

Resources On The World Wide Web
Concerning The Macintosh and The Law

The American Bar Association announces the creation of a new, revitalized, Web site specifically for attorneys who use the Macintosh computer in their legal practice. This comes contemporaneously with Apple's resurgent interest in the law office market. The site has links to articles and resources of interest to Macintosh-using attorneys. The Webmaster of the site invites you to visit, send feedback, and make suggestions on what content you would like to see on the site in the future.

Macs and the Judiciary

Confessions of a Mac Attorney
By Brad Handler, Esq.
(Excellent account of one attorney’s quest to keep using his Mac in an all-Windows firm. Includes myth-busting arguments, with cites, to use when pleading case with IS.)

Macintosh in the Law Office vs. Windows 95
(An article from late last year answering the question that was uppermost on the mind of most Macintosh-using attorneys: Will Windows 95 doom the Macintosh as an option for law office use?)

Attorneys who use Macs are better and more productive attorneys. At least, that is the experience at the Adams & Reese law firm in New Orleans, Louisiana. They have over 120 lawyers in their offices, making them one of the largest law firms in Louisiana and the Gulf South, and they use Macintoshes for everything from legal research on the internet to preparing briefs for the Supreme Court. Their firm was recently featured in Computer Counsel, a publication dedicated to the use of technology by lawyers. This publication usually reports only on the Wintel platform, but an entire recent issue was devoted to the use of Macs by lawyers. The Mac-related articles in that issue have been republished at: Anyone interested in the use of Macs in the PC-dominated legal field should take a look at the articles. In these articles, you'll hear from many lawyers who have decided that Apple simply provides the best platform.
