2010 Apple in Law Firms Survey Results

The results of our inaugural Apple in Law Firms Survey are in, and we’re excited to share the complete results here. Before we get underway, we’d like to announce the winner of the iPad giveaway: Holly Wilcox of Castle Rock, CO. Congratulations Holly, and thanks to everyone who participated in the survey.

The survey received 835 responses, and gave a useful sampling of responses across law firms of all sizes as well as from law students.

We’ll follow up in a series of blog posts this week with some insights on what we think the survey results mean. In the meantime, here are the full results:
