Going Mobile: Strategies for Advocates, Clients and Pro Bono Volunteers

* David Bonebrake, LSNTAP, Santa Monica, CA.
* Michael L. Monahan, State Bar of Georgia Pro Bono Project, Atlanta, GA.
* Jane Ribadeneyra, Legal Services Corporation, Washington, DC.

In a world of laptops, netbooks and iPhones, are your advocates tied to their desktops? Come learn about trends in mobile technology, including a discussion and demo of tools and resources to expand your reach to diverse communities. Find out how to take a mobile law office to clients in areas without easy access to a legal aid office by arming advocates with netbooks, wireless cards, mobile routers and portable printer/scanners. We'll also look at how to optimize your website for clients to access on their cell phones as well as ways to reach out using text messaging and podcasting.
