    Elon Law Student - Class of 2013
    Homework Assignment #1
    5 Advantages of Virtual Law Firms
    1) Full client coverage of your licensed state/area
    2) Clients have instantaneous access to webportal 24/7 for their documents/research
    3) Clients have better access to the lawyer through messaging and webcams especially during nontraditional business hours
    4) Huge savings in physical office costs especially if working from a home office
    5) The time spent from client introduction to matter completion is probably lowered dramatically by eliminating physical meetings or the postal service
    5 Concerns of Virtual Law Firms
    1) New practice methods contain unknown risks that could open up liability for malpractice or otherwise
    2) Depending on 3rd party software/hosting to conduct confidential business can also increase liability exposure (re: Anonymous)
    3) Clickwrap agreements for legal representation, even for limited representation, and "contact me now buttons" require a greater deal of attention in order to not unwittingly become someone's lawyer or have the lawyer/client privileges take effect
    4) Without access to information on how to competitively price flat fee services, new laywers especially are at a disadvantage due to lack of experience and a new market
    5) Regulations for brick-and-mortar practice may still hinder the innovations for virtual law offices until they are treated completely separate
    What is a Virtual Law Firm?
    - A virtual law firm is a group of lawyers with diverse expertise that are banded together through technological means to provide a suite of services to its clients.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_law_firm
    - A Virtual Law Office (VLO) offers all of the expertise and service of a traditional law office with three additional benefits: access is secure, is at your fingertips, is available on your time and with much lower fees. Your executed documents can also be stored electronically and accessed anywhere you can use the Internet.

    - A virtual law office (VLO) allows clients to receive quality, cost-effective, unbundled legal services entirely online. It’s all online and clients don’t have to travel to an office, or make an appointment, saving time and money. The Walker Law Firm also saves money on lower overhead costs and passes those savings on to clients. Clients can ask legal questions, or have legal documents professionally drafted, all from the comfort of their home (or wherever they are connected to the internet).

    For larger scale problems, the investment of time might be rather off putting, and modelling the branches would need to be done very well.

    Poor use of social media- 'push only' (no replies to @ tweets, no comments on blogs); lack of updates; lack of personality in posts.
