I’ve just started reviewing Niki’s book and what I’ve seen so far is very readable and highly informative. If you’ve been sitting back, watching this whole legal cloud computing thing develop before you take the plunge, this is a great book to get up to speed right away. It’s not a technical volume, but rather explains how the cloud benefits a law practice, explains the techie mumbo-jumbo from a high level, and then delves into the pragmatic aspects for law firms.
Stephanie Kimbro, another founding member of the Legal Cloud Computing Association and North Carolina lawyer, contributed a thorough chapter, “Ethical Implications of Cloud Computing in Law Practice” which lays out the issues of Model Rules and procedural rules as well. This chapter is worth the purchase price of the book in and of itself.
