Mobile Apps for Law Students: Introduction

About this Guide

This guide serves as an introduction to useful apps for law students. We highlight some apps that we have tried and liked and which will be useful to you in law school and beyond. 

While we read many sources to learn about apps for mobile devices, the folllowing two blogs focus on devices for particular mobile operating systems. They are written by practicing attorneys who have used the apps in their practice.

  • The Droid Lawyer: blog and weekly email newsletter covering Android apps for law practice. 
  • iPhone J.D.: blog and email newsletter covering news and information on using iOS devices for law practice.

For a comprehensive guide to other useful apps for lawyers, we recommend the fantastic Mobile Apps for Law Students and Lawyers guide maintained by our colleagues at the UCLA law library.

Finally, to search for any apps specific to the jurisdiction where you wish to practice, you may subscribe to Mobile Apps for Law,  a comprehensive directory of mobile apps for all types of devices.  While this database is not free, you may sign up for its free RSS feed to alert you about new apps.
