The iPad is changing the way that people practice law and, in particular, criminal law. A lawyer who might previously need to carry a statute book, a federal sentencing guidelines book, a federal criminal law book, the North Carolina sentencing guidelines, as well as the Rules of Evidence into court now can fit all of that onto an iPad.
First, the iPad has the latest edition of the 2009 NCGS and federal sentencing guidelines and federal criminal statutes. In addition, the iPad can maintain PDF files which can include North Carolina’s structured sentencing charts for felonies and misdemeanors.
Moreover, the iPad is soon to have its own Daylite application to let those who use the Mac Daylite client management system to connect to their CMS remotely.
Finally, the iPad has a series of tools to allow people to book clients remotely, including credit card processing apps.
