AgileLaw Launches Deposition Academy at ABA TECHSHOW 2014
Free online tool teaches litigators how to conduct more effective depositions
AUSTIN, TX: Today AgileLaw, a provider of cloud-based mobile solutions for lawyers, launched its next tool to make litigators more effective in their depositions. AgileLaw’s Deposition Academy is a free online resource for litigators seeking to hone their craft. In 2013, AgileLaw launched its flagship product at the ABA TECHSHOW. This year it will use the same venue to launch this new resource for litigators. The Deposition Academy consists of videos, articles, how-tos, as well as links to other valuable resources available. These tools will teach lawyers, young and old, to become more effective litigators.
“AgileLaw’s vision is to help lawyers everywhere dominate their depositions. So we’re launching the Deposition Academy to give litigators the tools they need to win,” said AgileLaw CEO Thomas Allen.
AgileLaw Chairman Cyclone Covey, himself an accomplished litigator, explained what this Academy offers to the legal field, “Many law schools don’t teach their students how to conduct depositions, so the only way young litigators have to learn is through on-the-job training. They naturally make a lot of mistakes early in their careers.”
But Mr. Covey stressed that the Deposition Academy isn’t just for new associates. In fact, AgileLaw offered existing customers a sneak preview at the Deposition Academy. Wes Lotz, a partner at Fulkerson Lotz, said “I have taken over 50 depositions in the last ten years, and I stay abreast of innovative technologies that help improve efficiency in my trial practice. I’m impressed with the value-added resources provided by AgileLaw’s Deposition Academy.”
Mr. Covey stars in the first video lessons and says AgileLaw’s plan is to bring in other experts to provide more specialized lessons and different viewpoints.
Upon its launch, the Deposition Academy has 3 original videos and references to numerous other online resources. Mr. Allen said that ultimately the Deposition Academy will offer valuable Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits for litigators. Already, the Deposition Academy makes AgileLaw the industry expert at depositions. “When litigators think ‘deposition,’ we want them to think AgileLaw.” Mr. Allen said via phone interview.
