Technological Changes in the Legal Industry

Technology completely changes the legal landscape as it evolves the role of the legal professional. Automated legal processes require lawyers, paralegals, legal secretaries and others in the legal field to become proficient in technology as well as the law. Legal career prospective need to understand word processing, telecommunications, databases, spreadsheets and other legal research software to be competitive in this increasingly technological world. Technology hits every area of legal practice, from law firms to corporate practices to document management to the very heart of the courtroom itself.

Law Firm Technology

Electronic billing has replaced traditional paper invoices in most law firms. Technology is also a crucial marketing tool, as newly published legal blogs become a critical component.

Electronic Case Management

Electronic case management completely revolutionizes how documents are now handled. Firms can electronically store case files that once took huge volumes. Databases are created to easily track, edit, search, distribute and archive documents. Computers can do in a second what it used to take a smoky room full of lawyers days to achieve.

Corporate Technology

Electronically filing documents in court, better known as e-filing, has become common practice in most federal and state courts. Files can then be posted on the Internet so that counsel, journalists or concerned citizens may access them from any computer. Courtrooms increasingly reap the benefits of the electronic age.

Technology and the Legal Professional

Legal professionals now use legal technology more than ever. Instead of the stereotypical legal pad, Blackberries, video conference tools and data applications are closer to the reality. While the traditional briefcase remains important, it is more likely to contain a laptop than an excess of legal documents.


New federal rules enacted in 2006 now require litigating parties to preserve and produce documents that are normally in an electronic format. This includes email, text messages, voice mails, instant messages and other forms of electronic media. The process of reviewing and reading these pages has created an array of litigation database management tools. Legal professionals code, image, analyze and review this massive amount of electronic evidence through a system known as database discovery.

E-discovery has given rise to the new legal professional known as the litigations support professional. If this field interests you, find legal staffing services to help you reach your career goals.

The Best Mobile Broadband Deals in South Africa 2015

Cell C is next. Cell C is SA's third cellular network, having been founded in 2001, and has 11 million subscribers to date, with a 90% coverage of SA. Virgin Mobile SA piggybacks off of their network. Cell C is partly responsible for bringing about the lowering of data prices in South Africa, as well as boasting about their use of the superior 900MHz band.

But the price war that Cell C started took its toll on the network. With low prices, an influx of new subscribers crippled their network. It was the only way that they could compete with Vodacom and MTN, because they didn't offer the same network strength. Alan Knott-Craig, CEO of Cell C, says that the only hope for the company in the future is consolidation. According to him, when the market becomes saturated, then you have to consider merging with another company. A partnership between Cell C and Telkom has been in talks for some time and may not be far off.

Cell C has for some time, since 2010, had great prepaid deals, whether they be once-off or long term. You also have the choice of whether you buy just the SIM, or the modem and SIM with some of them. Just note that with their long term prepaid deals, like the 2 GB p/m one, the data resets every 30 days as indicated on their website. The data doesn't last an entire month and doesn't reset on the 1st of the month. Of course, there are options, like with the Giga 200 deal, where the data is valid for 365 days with no monthly caps. And with the above mentioned deal, along with others, you get Giganite, which gives you data to use during off peak hours.

Their contract deals are often ridiculous compared to the prepaid option, because not only do you have to pay R195 for a SIM and connection fee, but you also usually only get a lighter 7.2 Mbps-capable modem. Being trapped in a Law Firm in Sandton 24 month contract isn't ideal, when newer and better deals tend to spring up every year - not every other year. And while on the topic, be sure you sign a termination of contract notice a month in advance before the contract "expires" otherwise you'll keep having data loaded on to your sim and possibly at new rates. The Consumer Protection Act states that by law they have to put you on month to month until you cancel.

Cell C's prepaid data bundles, which last for a calendar month, aren't bad at all, if you don't want to commit to a big deal like the ones above, and would rather buy bundles on a once-off basis. It's also worth checking in at registered resellers like Makro, Game, or Dion Wired, because you might save a pretty penny with deals you won't find at Cell C stores.
