Real-Time Document Collaboration

In my recent article on using wikis in the contract-drafting process, I suggested that a simpler way to capture the collarborative aspect of wikis without any of the anarchy would be to use an online-collaboration tool such as Google Docs.

So today I noted with interest an article in Legal Technology entitled “Time for Lawyers to Collaborate in Real Time.” It’s by Brett Burney (a consultant) and it discusses various ways lawyers can collaborate online on a document and avoid the inefficiencies involved in, for example, trading comments by email.
