As legal technology breaks new ground, it’s more critical than ever that legal professionals get, and keep, their software up to date. Outdated software presents three primary problems: security vulnerabilities, program instability, and poor compatibility with other applications. But the benefits of updating go beyond overcoming these problems, offering access to new software features and incremental change that is easy to adapt to.
We explain the barriers that legal practices need to overcome to embrace software updates as well as the challenges that technology developers address with new products and services. Finally, we offer best practices to support consistent updating.
