It can be easy to get confused about how the law fits into your life at certain points. You may not understand the intricacies of financial law, or what your options are when it comes to suing someone in a slip and fall case, or what you need to know before starting divorce proceedings. But lucky for you, technology comes to the rescue, as long as you know how to use your resources!
And five ways in particular that can help your cause include finding FAQ sections in law websites to help you, setting up Google alerts about the news, watching YouTube channels about the law, making sure you know how to verify sources, and being sure to look for legitimate reviews of legal entities, law firms, or even law books.
Read FAQ Sections
One of the easiest ways to get solid legal information using technology is by looking up websites belonging to law firms, and reading their FAQ sections. Chances are, if you have a question about the law, it’s been asked and answered millions of times before, and if the most frequently asked questions are organized properly on these websites, it can save you a ton of work trying to decipher answers on your own.
Set Up Google Notifications
If you’re interested in some specific legal topic, you can use a cool technological feature of Google that allows your email system to ping you when certain topics come up in the news. That way you do have to constantly search for ‘copyright infringement laws,’ but rather every time Google finds a trending article about it, the link will be immediately sent to your account for you to browse whenever.
Watch YouTube Channels
YouTube is a tremendous resource, and the better technology in general gets, the more power and convenience the streaming video platform is going to give you. Find some good YouTube channels about the law (sometimes they are people’s personal channels, or maybe a channel associated with a law school) and regularly check out their content.
Use your tech wisely to check and recheck your sources of information as well. There’s a ridiculous amount of fake content and clickbait on the web right now, and because people who are searching for legal information may not be familiar with the lingo and the attributes, it can be doubly hard for them to filter the good and the bad.
Look for Legitimate Reviews Of Legal Entities
Reviews of law firms, or just legal resources in general, are very helpful. And with new technology that does a better job filtering out the nonsensical, fake, or overhyped information of the past, it’s going to be a more factual experience for you finding out what real people thought about real legal situations and solutions.
