Only legal tech nerds like me know there is actually a legal industry specific keyboard. But for many, the fact it wasn’t wireless was a deal-breaker. No more.

Bob Ambrogi reports that the LegalBoard now has a wireless model. So if you go out tonight and see a bunch of lawyers celebrating, don’t assume they had a big trial win. Maybe they just got their wireless LegalBoards.

You may ask, who cares? Apparently, lots of folks. Ambrogi writes:

“Never in my 14 years of blogging and more than two decades of covering legal technology have I seen the legal world react to a new product as it did this week to the LegalBoard, a keyboard designed for lawyers.”

That is what I wrote in 2017 after I published a blog post announcing the LegalBoard, a keyboard designed for lawyers by a lawyer. Hits to that post went through the roof, far exceeding any post I’d ever published.

Thus proving the axiom that many lawyers can’t see the forest for the trees.

I guess I’m going to have to see it in action before I buy into the hoopla. It’s an awfully wide keyboard, which isn’t great for shoulders and arm tendons.

Plus, I know how to insert the dreaded symbols ¶ and § in Word. Footnotes are no problem either–it’s on my shortcut bar.

If anyone has one, please leave a comment on whether you like it.
