The Lawyer’s Guide to Going Paperless
A comprehensive, easy-to-read overview to help you decide if going paperless is right for you.
(Hint: If you like the idea of having more free time, fewer expenses and a clutter-free office, then it probably is.)
Flexibility. Freedom. Files at your Fingertips.
I believe the future of legal practice is paperless, and here’s why:
You can access your client’s entire file history in a few clicks. Instead of spending hours rifling through stacks of documents, you can find the information you’re looking for in less time than it would take you to get the lid off the box.
You’ll save money every year on storage, stationery, and office supplies.
It’s more secure. You’ll have multiple back-ups of your files stored in the cloud, safe from fires, floods and theft. You can set access limits and password-protect certain files so that sensitive client data never ends up in the wrong hands.
It’ll free up countless hours that you can dedicate to fee-earning work (or doing whatever it is you love to do but never have the time for).
You can take your work wherever you go without having to lug boxes of files with you. A paperless system means you can pick up where you left off, no matter where you are.
It will significantly reduce your firm’s impact on the environment, an issue that has never been more urgent than it is right now.
Everything you need to succeed is right here.
Making the switch to a paperless system is challenging, but it’s worth it. It will streamline your workflow, supercharge your productivity, and add valuable hours to your week.
I’ve been where you are right now: interested in going paperless but confused about how to actually do it. That’s why I created Paperless Academy and packed it full of resources to help you navigate the transition smoothly.
Whether you learn best by reading, watching, or doing – I’ve got something for you.

4 – Guides
The written word doesn’t lend itself very well to an explanation of a paperless system. My courses are all built on video demonstrations so I’ve made a few short video guides to show you what you can expect.
My personal favourite is “How to Build a Bookmarked Digital Brief in 30 Seconds (for free)” but you can make up your own mind.
I’ve also written some articles about aspects of paperless that are worthy of attention – why Acrobat Pro isn’t worth paying for; how to use a Virtual Assistant; common scanning mistakes; and more.
