The one item that all attorneys hate is the steep price of legal research software. When I first began to practice law, it cost a few thousand a year, so that was affordable. Know t costs $25,000 a year on average, since it covers many more local and foreign courts. Is it worth it? Sometimes I am unsure since I often do not use all the services it has. Once I started reading about a case in Spain and it was amazing. It was a good read but I doubt it made me a better lawyer.
