Must-See Legal PDA Resources

Have you visited JurisPDA lately? I was corresponding with Grace Lee (Electronic Services Librarian extraordinaire of the New York Law School, which operates the site) regarding web-based news aggregrators and she mentioned the site. JurisPDA is pretty much a one-stop shop for PDA-toting legal professionals. Particularly useful are the PDA software links which are aptly categorized for quick reference. Highly recommended Palm programs are marked with an asterisk, and are many of the programs that I've often recommended in my legal PDA presentations. There are also many tips and suggestions for using your Palm-based PDA.

Under Legal Content, you'll find links to a number of statutes, cases, procedural rules, governmental content and more. Particularly useful is the link to LawPDA, which sells updated resources such as the 2004 versions of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Rules of Evidence (updated through December 31, 2003, which is pretty darn current). LawPDA publishes many of these in the popular PalmReader, iSilo, and Microsoft Reader formats.

Thus if you're a legal professional and really want to get the most and best use of your PDA, or just want to pick up a new trick or two, I highly recommend checking them out.
