Security, Up High and Down Low: Who Hears Your Voice-To-Text Recordings?

In our latest contribution to the ILTA Peer to Peer Magazine, we address the important topic of privacy, as it relates to voice-to-text technology. 

Dictation is nothing new for attorneys, but voice-to-text technologies such as Siri have opened new avenues for attorneys and their mobile devices. Attorneys routinely enter time, record and transcribe case notes, delegate tasks, and maintain client and other correspondence via the voice-to-text technologies on their mobile devices. In this age of digital vulnerability, could Siri and its voice-powered pals be sharing sensitive case information with the Internet at large?

Legal Mobility 2016: Five Predictions

Posted by Gaby Isturiz on January 12, 2016 at 2:01 PM

Are “predictions” posts, which are immensely popular this time of year,  “pointless,” as The Lawyerist recently pointed out? They certainly can be! As The Lawyerist pointed out, this time of year is filled with posts attempting to predict what is to come in the legal industry over the coming year, and many times it sets the expectation that there will be a monumental or explosive shift, rather than a gradual change over time. We can’t disagree with that. Our industry, after all, is typically slow to change and adopt the new, particularly when it comes to technology. However, the gradual changes that have occurred over the past several years have led us to an interesting moment in legal technology history. Therefore, since we can’t resist a good “predictions” post of our own, we’ll focus on the key technologies, ideas or behaviors that will either be introduced or come into their own in the coming year.
