Why The Electronic Deposition Transcript is Crucial After The Deposition



For the past two weeks we've been talking about electronic transcripts. To end our discussion we wanted to focus on the most important reason electronic tanscripts exist. No matter if you are traditional or just don't see the need for a electronic deposition transcript, making the switch to an electronic depositions can be tough for any lawyer. But, you can't make a decision on rather or not to use electronic transcripts based on you experiences before or during a deposition. The real benefits come after the deposition:


1. Import and Export Do you have supporting documents that go with a particular deposition transcript? Forget stapling, filing or paper clipping the associated information to the transcript, try importing and exporting. Have those important documents already linked to the right deposition transcript.


2. No More Sticky Notes Sticky notes and deposition transcripts...Should we say more? It's just not an effective way to keep up with notes that were taken during, before, or after the deposition. We think Post It Notes were a great invention but productivity and time saving procedures like digitally attaching notes and files to your annotations is just priceless.


3. Summaries A summarized deposition is very handy, but it leads to more paperwork being added to your desk. Electronic deposition transcripts get rid of that extra paper work by allowing you to create and print reports and transcripts easily.


4. Keywords and Tags The bottom line? Stop digging through paper and highlighting words to stand out so you'll get back to them easier... keyword search through tagging is a luxury. Take advantage of it and focus on the more important things.


5. Collaborations You have notes, your colleagues has notes, the court reporter has notes, your boss has notes, the judge has notes.... we could go on. With electronic transcripts everyone can add their 2 cents in real time.


Why did you become a lawyer in the first place? Was it for mounds of paper work or was it because you loved the legal system? Did you want to make a difference in today's society? Or maybe legal careers were prevalent in your family and you wanted to carry out the tradition? No matter what the reason get over paperwork burnout and start using a court reporting agency that can provide you with real solutions so you can focus on what you really came to do.

I agree that the electronic transcript is important after a deposition is taken. It saves attorneys lots of money when it comes to preparing expert witnesses. It is easy for a court reporter to forward the transcript to the attorney and the attorney to forward it to the experts.

In my experience it's also important to provide a variety of electronic formats of the electronic transcript. While many in Toronto, Ontario, Canada use Summation as their database of choice, we still have clients who use Word and plain text ASCII. It's also very helpful to provide the transcript in PDF format so that clients and experts can review the transcript prepared by the court reporter without need for any additional software.

I consent to the electronic transcript is significant following a deposition is in use. It save attorneys lots of cash at what time it come up to to get ready specialist witness. It is simple for a court reporting to onward the transcript to the brief and the attorney to ahead it to the professional.

Can you tell me a little bit more about how to get into court reporting? I've always wanted to be involved in this industry, but I don't know what it takes, how long it takes, whether or not I need schooling, etc. What can you tell me or what advice do you have for me? Anything is appreciated! Thank you.
