Justice Judy Joins YouTube

The Ohio State Bar Association has created a series of instructional videos posted on YouTube for new attorneys who are beginning their careers in the practice of law. I was delighted to be part of that program. While I’m not ready to launch my very own YouTube channel, there are two videos I’d like to tell you about.

In the first one, I make a few recommendations for what new attorneys should know as they begin appearing before judges and the courts. Click here to watch that video:

In the second, I discuss the basics of Ohio’s court system. To watch that one, click here:

Although the series is directly primarily toward new layers, I hope this information will be helpful to you, too.

High Tech Education

New developments in technology like iPads, smart phones and cloud computing are changing our lives in many ways. Judges, court personnel and others within the judicial system will be able to keep up with these ever-changing times because of a new Supreme Court educational service.

The Court’s Judicial College launched the Judicial eCademy Tuesday. It allows users interested in education and training to browse courses, access material, register and take selected courses entirely online, all without leaving home or the office.

But the best feature about the service is that it will save time by reducing travel expenses for local courts and money by reducing printing costs for course materials for the Court.
