"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
I did not want to get rid of my Microsoft ergonomically correct keyboard (which I use just to be proactive to prevent carpal tunnel considering the amount I type). Therefore I chose to purchase the LegalPad rather than the full keyboard option. This LegalPad is a great compliment. I am a big fan of the Em dash. For this button alone, the LegalPad was worth it.
I’m a law student and I absolutely love this keyboard. It saves me so much time because it enables me to easily find and insert shortcuts and special characters that I often use.
I love the product. I wish there was a Bluetooth version of it though.
Bought it for a busy 1L student who is delighted with it. Definitely speeds up his memos. He plans to use it for exams to shave off some time.
I purchased this as gifts for all the attorneys at my law firm and everybody is in LOVE with it! The "section symbol", "paragraph symbol", "plaintiff" and "defendant" keys alone are worth it. I also purchased the legal pad to see which I would prefer for myself. Definitely go for the keyboard instead of the pad (I found it cumbersome to have a third wired device and didn't know where to place it so it was comfortable and convenient to use). The keyboard is definitely the way to go.
