This post from the Lawyerist blog makes the point that new lawyers need to know basic office technology skills so they're able to copy, scan, fax, e-file and create pdf's when the support staff is not around (like late at night). Other "basic" technology skills you need to know? How about
- The ability to add Bates numbers to a document;
- The ability to redact information from a document;
- The ability to create a letter on your firm letterhead;
- The ability to set up and run a conference call and add individuals to a call; and
- The ability to conference someone into a call on your cell phone.
