Upgrade Your Note Taking Tools

By Jim Calloway

Like many lawyers, I still sometimes take notes by hand on a legal pad. The challenge is that saving information in a non-digital format hampers reuse and searching. I have in the past “converted” the notes to a digital format by opening Word and using its Dictate speech recognition tool to create a searchable file.

Cathrine Reach, Director of the North Carolina Bar Association Center for Practice Management, has just posted Modern Note-Taking, a review of several note taking tools including both apps and physical devices like the reMarkable 2. This is a great resource for those of us who need to upgrade our digital note taking.

You will have more opportunities to learn from Catherine as she will be our guest at the OBA Annual Meeting July 10-12, 2024 in Norman, Oklahoma.
