Do you bank online? Ever done a Google search? Use Facebook? If you answered YES to any of these, then you are already a cloud computing consumer.

What’s in it for you as a lawyer, or for your law firm?
Cloud computing can reduce a lawyer’s IT expenses and time spent on management while increasing personal and firm efficiency. Up-front purchase costs for software and other applications can be replaced with stable monthly fees. These are some of the benefits of cloud computing, but there are risks and concerns that a lawyer must take into account when considering a move to the Cloud.
