A weak legal job market...

For the second month in a row, the legal job market lost jobs.

This trend isn't very surprising to most, as cost-controls and poor allocation of lawyers have almost assuredly meant the golden days of the legal profession are at an end and new attorneys can't expect the "old ways" to lead to future success (or, increasingly, even subsistence)

Technology isn't an end-all-be-all solution, but using technology, like cloud-based legal software solutions, can give savvy attorneys a leg up on their competition (and make no mistake, other attorneys are your competition) by allowing them to provide better service at a lower cost; simplifying and standardizing your internal systems and freeing up your time to actually, you know, practice.
