Ernest Svenson
Ernest Svenson  is the co-founder of DigitalWorkflowCLE and an attorney at Svenson Law Firm. After graduating from Loyola Law School in 1985 clerking for a federal trial judge in New Orleans, he has practiced commercial litigation, first for a well-respected New Orleans law firm, and more recently as a solo practitioner.  He has started several weblogs, including PDFforLawyers and DigitalWorkflowCLE, but it is his ‘Ernie the Attorney’ weblog that was chosen by the ABA Journal as one of the top 100 law weblogs two years in a row. He routinely speaks to lawyers about:
  • Developing a paperless law practice
  • Using PDFs to improve information handling
  • Better visual presentation using Powerpoint & Keynote
  • Social Media for lawyers (practical & ethical issues)
  • How small firm lawyers can use technology better
  • Cloud computing issues for lawyers (practical & ethical)

The hosts have not applied for CLE credit; however attorneys have successfully applied for credit for some sessions in some states, e.g. Washington.
The TDLP series runs for one hour a week for nine weeks and will feature a different guest speaker each week. Each class will be delivered via webcast and will have a 30 minute lecture presentation followed by a question & answer period and an online, interactive homework assignment for all course students to complete.
The presentations will be recorded and posted to the course blog for future viewing!
