Law Firm and online video

October 9th, 2007 · No Comments

Bull, Housser & Tupper LLP is one of the long history (founded in 1890) Canadian law firm with approximately 95 lawyers. Though is an “old” firm but their ideas are very up-to-date, indeed.

Apart from having a well designed site, they have also launched a site called www.bhtstudent.com which is using online video to give an in-depth introduction to the prospective summer/articling students about the working life in the firm.

This is really an eye opening for me to realise that legal firm can be so innovative and IT savvy. In fact, there are many more can be done by legal firms in this aspect, especially law firms in Malaysia. We still have a lot to catch up.

I believe the rigid and stringent publicity ruling of Bar Council and the “IT phobia” of most of the lawyers here could be the main factor that we can’t see some thing like this in Malaysia. 

I think IT is like eating durian, some may find the smell to be unpleasant at the first instant but once you have tasted it, you will love it and can’t do away with it.
