Overcoming Information Overload (live)

The daily flood of e-mail, documents, and other files can easily leave your attorneys and support staff—the people you depend on for moving the firm forward— overwhelmed. Added to the stress of managing the vast amount of information they already have, frustration quickly sets in and productivity suffers.

The computer technology brought in to help organize this information hasn’t lived up to its promise— in many cases it has made matters worse.

The hard reality is that people need new skills to manage information in the electronic world. Old systems built around paper must be re-engineered, and new, flexible approaches introduced.

This workshop helps your valuable human assets move past information overload and regain control of their information, so they can work more efficiently and ultimately make better decisions.

Lewis Eisen brings a practice-driven perspective and teaches techniques that take into account:

  • 7 fundamental facts about how the brain processes and indexes information
  • how we unintentionally overload ourselves
  • the growing number of electronic information formats
  • the overlap between personal work habits and corporate information structures
  • the practical difficulties of going completely paperless

Stop feeling overwhelmed by information, and start taking control. People leave this workshop knowing:

  • the five correct reasons for keeping a piece of information
  • how to avoid duplication of paper and electronic records
  • how to properly divide ‘information spaces’ into intake, workspace, and storage
  • strategies for organizing their deadline dates, notes, and clippings
  • risk-management principles which mesh with information management best-practices

Faculty: Lewis Eisen has worked in Information Management for the Government of Canada for over ten years. As a faculty member of The Professional Education Group and a trainer and consultant to the legal profession since 1987, he has trained lawyers and judges across Canada and the United States to use technology and manage information effectively

Eisen is the author of four editions of The Canadian Lawyer’s Internet Guide, as well as numerous articles on law and technology. He has also written the Net Beat column for The Lawyers Weekly, and has been a regular contributor to the Canadian Bar Association’s General Practitioner’s Digest.

As a member of the Ontario Bar, Eisen practiced with the Toronto firm of Wexler, Fleet & Eisen, then served as the office systems manager for the 100-lawyer Toronto firm of Campbell, Godfrey & Lewtas.

Eisen attended University of Toronto Law School, and was called to the Ontario bar in 1983. After practicing law in Toronto, he moved into the field of law office automation, and spent three years as the director of the Law Society of Upper Canada’s Computer Education Facility, where he coordinated and taught computer courses to lawyers across Ontario. Eisen is past president of the Canadian Society for the Advancement of Legal Technology.
