Confession: Although I know plenty about lawyers and their shiny new gadgets, I don't have an iPad myself. When I tried one out at Best Buy, it just seemed too heavy and hard to handle, especially when I'm used to reading from my iPhone for hours at a time. I'll probably change my mind eventually (and this cover with a handstrap might mean sooner rather than later). For now, though, no.
Meanwhile, there's been lots of discussion about the ways lawyers can use iPads. Here are a few sources for your consideration:
