"Never in my 14 years of blogging and more than two decades of covering legal technology have I seen the legal world react to a new product as it did this week to the LegalBoard, a keyboard designed for lawyers."
Robert Ambrogi, Above The Law
"Using the LegalBoard won’t stop lawyers from using two spaces after a period, writing in Times New Roman, or including unnecessary string citations. But it will make legal writing easier for lawyers, at a modest cost. And that’s a good thing."
Brendan Kenney, The Lawyerist
"An easy 'A–.' If only all my briefs were that good!"
Edward J. Zohn, TechnoLawyer
“We’ve all created shortcut keys for these symbols in the past, but they don’t always work in email and they often get stripped every time IT upgrades software or changes my settings.
I’ve always thought that there must be an easier way, and now someone has finally come up with one: the LegalBoard.”
Jack Williams, Law Technology Today
Purchased for Office; Keyboard > Legal Pad
I purchased this as gifts for all the attorneys at my law firm and everybody is in LOVE with it! The "section symbol", "paragraph symbol", "plaintiff" and "defendant" keys alone are worth it. I also purchased the legal pad to see which I would prefer for myself. Definitely go for the keyboard instead of the pad (I found it cumbersome to have a third wired device and didn't know where to place it so it was comfortable and convenient to use). The keyboard is definitely the way to go.
I love this keyboard makes everything easier
I now own the full size and the travel size, both make my writing so much easier and dare I say fun. If we could get what ever material the travel size is made of, in full size for writing in the courtroom quietly, my legal life would be complete.
Not there yet for a highly specialized practice
We have a highly specialized practices where about half of the shortcuts are useful, but the biggest citation forms we need are not available. If we could customize several of the citation keys, then I think this would be a popular option at our firm, but without that, our technology reviewers just couldn't recommend it. Trying to remember which half of what you need has a shortcut is more effort than it saves.
Such a great product!!
The legal pad makes my life so much easier and is so intuitive to use
