At Legal Tech NY 2012, I had the chance to speak with David Netzer, the President of LitigationSupportCareers.com, which he describes as “an alternative to Monster.com and CareerBuilder.com.” In a continuing trend of leveraging the web to pursue local opportunities, Netzer created LitigationSupportCareers.com to provide a portal for the industry to specifically advertise legal technology and litigation support positions. He notes that it builds efficiency by increasing the number of qualified applicants while reducing the amount of resumes that employers ultimately need to evaluate. Job seekers can also proactively search for positions by location, category, and employer type. Watch our interview below:

I read this post 10 Big Reasons We Need to Reinvent the School Year from Online Colleges and it resonated with me because of my research and recent article – Applying the Alternative Fee Model to Law School Tuition, which has generated some additional discussion. The Online Colleges staff writers conclude that “the school year that worked for students decades ago simply isn’t practical for today’s students” and propose altering the school year because, among other reasons:
Flexibility in the length of high school could help students better prepare for college.
The reasons behind the creation of summer vacation don’t really apply to modern life.
Students often simply don’t have time to learn everything they need in a school year.
Year-round school can also impact students’ overall health and well-being.
This discussion is taking place across the educational spectrum as technology continues to transform the manner in which we deliver information.
