With the popularity of Apps spreading across all types of professional fields, the legal profession has taken advantage of the opportunity to create Apps that make life easier for not only lawyers, but law students as well. Recently two particular legal Apps have made the news, one for its innovation and one for its exorbitant price.
Esq. Apps, a company that creates mobile apps for lawyers, recently announced its newest App called iPleading. It describes iPleading as the “first mobile legal template generator designed to follow customs of the legal professions and the rules of State and Federal Courts.”
iPleading allows all legal professionals to easily create litigation documents on their iPhone, iTouch, or iPad. Esq. Apps also claims that the App works great for busy attorneys as it bypasses time-consuming problems with formatting Microsoft Word for use in litigation. The app is available at the App Store for $3.99.
Studying for the Bar Exam reminds most people of long hours of studying with columns of books stacked around them. But studying for the Bar just hit the App world. BarMax, a bar prep study course previously available for the iPhone, is now starting to roll out its full content available for the iPad by making its California edition available this week. But it doesn’t come cheap with a price tag of $999.
The App offers customers two months of lecture material, thousands of pages of documentation in electronic format, sample MBE questions, sample essay exams and flash cards. The new version for the iPad takes advantage of the larger screen by offering an outline layout of course content, a redesigned multiple choice selection and the ability to highlight text, add notes and bookmark pages.
