Litigator Apps

Litigator apps™Always a work in progress, this resource was originally published in July 2012 and was most recently updated: 6/21/14

Learning about the latest legal apps may be a time-consuming task until a LAW or LEGAL category is added to the App Store. And with Apple changing its App Store search algorithm periodically, it seems even more difficult to uncover appropriate apps for attorneys, unless you already know the precise app name. In an effort to save time for busy litigators and trial teams, we have compiled a solid app list here with links to the App Store where you can read descriptions, view screenshots, go to the developer website, learn about support and more. There is also a listing of apps geared for future litigators entitled Law Students.

We are pleased to introduce Litigator apps in ALPHA ORDER with brief description, BY CATEGORY and a LAW STUDENTS section.

Helpful eBooks/Books here and reviews of iPad and iPhone legal apps by iPhoneJD.

To find legal iPad apps for certain states, simply search in the App Store under that state name to help narrow your search results. There are simply too many state-oriented legal apps to include here. Find state-specific legal apps and more by ALM and Tekk Innovations.

If you know about an app that would appeal to litigators, trial teams and law students considering litigation, please contact us. We will continue to keep this list updated, and we have made it a PAGE on this blog entitled “Litigator Apps” for easy access anytime.
