Technology is simplifying many of our everyday tasks, especially those we complete on the job. For lawyers admitted to the Bar in New York, the inception of Law Hub is doing just that and so much more.
Just as social media managers and public relations professionals have a number of tools to help them monitor all of their daily scheduled content and brand mentions on the web in one place — think tools like Hootsuite, SproutSocial, HubSpot, etc. — lawyers finally do too, thanks to the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA).
Law Hub is a one stop shop for actively practicing lawyers. It’s a free tool for New York State Bar members that lets its users access a number of places including FastCase, Clio, LawPay, and Google Calendar on one platform. The tool also has information on upcoming CLEs and NYSBA news readily available for users.
The New York State Bar Association is the largest voluntary bar association in the nation boasting more than 74,000 members, and with such a large audience to reach, using technology seems to be the only feasible way to stay connected.
By creating a customized experience tailored to each user’s individual needs we hope to change the way in which lawyers run their law practices and to provide lawyers with new technology that facilitates interaction with clients, referral partners and their bar association.
With technology like this at our fingertips, will Law Hub will expand beyond state lines and spread across the rest of the United States? As a profession, we have made leaps and bounds in adopting new forms of technology, but I’m curious would you use a tool like this? Let us know what you think.
