That was one of the greatest days of my life at the time because, for at least the previous few years, I had been lobbying my parents for a moped and they had never gotten me one. Then, one Friday, my grandmother came over and I tried the same lobbying approach on her, and by Saturday afternoon, I was riding a new moped. When I got the moped, I could not believe it. I reckoned I would likely keep and enjoy it forever. “You like this now, but in a year or two you are going to want a car,” she told me.

I remember looking at her as if she were crazy.

“No I won’t!” I told her. “How could someone ever want anything more than this great moped?”

What Questions Should a Paralegal Ask before Being Hired at a Law Firm? What Questions Should a Paralegal Ask before Being Hired at a Law Firm?
by Nabeal Twereet

We asked attorneys and paralegals throughout the country what questions a paralegal should ask before being hired at a law firm. They provided straightforward and useful advice that a potential paralegal should ask their employers. We hope you enjoy their responses.

How to Overcome Barriers in Adopting IT in Law Firms
Summary: A recent report by Blue Hill Research suggest that mutual ignorance and distrust between lawyers and IT people serve as the root cause for law firms failing to get the right IT partners.
