25 Game-Changing iPad Apps for Law Students & Lawyers

I try to keep informed on iPad apps for lawyers. However, there are so many apps proliferating the landscape it is hard to keep up. I received a suggestion from Helene Schmidt as a comment for the article, 25 Game-Changing iPad Apps for Law Students & Lawyers”, recently published at ( ). This is a good article and the apps there work well for law students as well as lawyers. A word of caution, most of the apps that I recommend are free, many of these apps are not free but are very useful.  Review this article and decide which ones are for you if you are an IPad owner and need legal apps for it.

In February 1982 the Syrian government killed more than 10,000 people in the city of Hama.  Hama today again is a center of opposition to the current Syrian regime.
