"Never in my 14 years of blogging and more than two decades of covering legal technology have I seen the legal world react to a new product as it did this week to the LegalBoard, a keyboard designed for lawyers."
Robert Ambrogi, Above The Law
"Using the LegalBoard won’t stop lawyers from using two spaces after a period, writing in Times New Roman, or including unnecessary string citations. But it will make legal writing easier for lawyers, at a modest cost. And that’s a good thing."
Brendan Kenney, The Lawyerist
"An easy 'A–.' If only all my briefs were that good!"
Edward J. Zohn, TechnoLawyer
“We’ve all created shortcut keys for these symbols in the past, but they don’t always work in email and they often get stripped every time IT upgrades software or changes my settings.
I’ve always thought that there must be an easier way, and now someone has finally come up with one: the LegalBoard.”
Jack Williams, Law Technology Today
Bought for my daughter who is Law student. Her reaction: "This is the best gift that I have ever received.
Can't live without it!
I love this keypad so much! I'm an older 1L student and I don't type very fast. I was able to finish 19 sets of Bluebook exercises quickly since I didn't need to type out all the repetitive words and symbols. I can't stop raving about this tool. My daughter is a Poly-Sci major and asked me to get her one as well. I've even told my class mates they should all get one!
Law student loves it!
My spouse is at the end of her 2 year of law school and I got this for her as a gift! I think the best thing on this keypad is the footnote option! She raves about it! Easy to use and set up!
Where has this been all my life?
I wish the full keyboard worked with Mac, because I just plain like it as a keyboard. The keys are made so that crumbs and dust won't get under them. Some of the features are straight-up godsends. My favorite is creating a new footnote and then jumping back into the text. Some other features don't work super well on Mac. For some reason, the comment button just makes a line break instead. En-dashes and em-dashes took a little programming in Word, but once they worked, they worked. My main actual complaint is that I wish there were some way to change the function of a key that I don't need. The copyright symbol doesn't really come up much in my future practice area or any of the classes I'm taking, for example. So it would be cool to be able to replace it with a character or a phrase that does. That said, I'm still psyched. It trimmed my cite check time down, and it's quite useful for writing for class. If I'm on PC when I start at a firm, I'll get the full keyboard, too.
