    Paralegals Back to School: It’s a New (Tech) World

    Paralegals Back to School: It’s a New (Tech) World

    The legal profession was already going online and high-tech. But COVID disruptions, working from home, and remote legal processes have supercharged those changes.
    Are you up to speed? 
    Host Jill Francisco – a veteran paralegal and classroom instructor – interviews attorney and longtime professor Todd Richardson about today’s classroom experience. It’s more than lectures and books. Today’s learning includes new technology, working collaboratively online and in person, and leveraging digital tools to expedite cases, gather information, and navigate the modern legal jungle.
    Richardson explores how legal education is changing and how vital learning today’s tech keeps a paralegal valued and vital in the workplace.
    He also touches on areas where soft skills still play an important role. Knowing how to integrate tech with interpersonal skills can build and maintain relationships so important in the legal community.

Replace Jill Francisco

I’m sorry, but this lady makes the podcast unbearable to listen to now. She sounds like she’s reading off a prompter or something. Nothing personal, as she seems nice and knowledgeable, but the tone and delivery of the podcast is TERRIBLE. She almost sounds like the people presenting their business idea on Shark Tank. Just bring the guy back or find someone else.
