List-Servs & Chats

Many technology divisions of the state and county bar associations provide dedicated list-servs that are open to bar association or section/division members. Likewise many technology sites provide chat rooms or discussion pages for consumers to post questions and answers about particular products and their functionality.


Below is just a sampling of legal technology blogs but more can be found on Justia's Blog List-Technology or the ABA's Blawg list for Legal Technology (no new blogs are being added to the list but existing blogs may still be updated). Many bloggers can also be followed on Twitter for more real-time updates or notifications of new posts.
