Change your mindset. Transform your practice. Take advantage of technologies in the way they were meant to be used.
Technology has changed our lives in the following ways:
- Social and business communication.
- Globalization of trade and business opportunities.
- New business strategies.
- National and international laws and legal precedent in new areas.
- Availability of technologies to take legal practice, mediation, and arbitration online.
Lawyers and mediators must stay abreast of these changes as they move their practices into the next century, both in meeting the needs of clients and in staying up to speed with competitors who are already utilizing the newest and most efficient technologies to do similar work.
In my experience, lawyers use of technology hasn’t changed much in the last 25 years, and instead of it being used as a liberating force to help with legal practice, it has made us available 24/7 to clients everywhere, made our work more complicated and has missed its potential to improve ease of access to justice for potential clients.
What mediators and lawyers need:
- Access to the newest technologies that will keep their practice up to speed.
- Training in the use of new technology.
- Understanding of the changes in the business and legal arena that will drive practices forward.

I am one of the founders of the American Bar Association Tech Show, an annual conference where lawyers, legal professionals and technology come together and attendees learn about the technologies available in the field, and I am a fellow at the National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution. Not only do I have knowledge of the technologies influencing the practice of law, I use them and have been one of the leading proponents for developing their integration into the field.
I have written and taught about Cyblerlaw concepts for over 30 years and provide simple strategies backed by research and years of work in the field of online dispute resolution and the globalization of the practice of law.
