Adobe Acrobat 8 for Legal Professionals
With the release of Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional, Adobe Systems now delivers features specific to the legal profession, including Bates numbering and redaction. Building on a solid foundation, Acrobat 8 gives legal professionals the power to intuitively create and access PDF files, collect information, securely control access to information, and facilitate collaboration. The widespread adoption of electronic court filings and the growing practice of exchanging disclosure and discovery materials in electronic format calls for tools to perform those tasks. Acrobat 8 delivers a comprehensive solution for working with digital documents, akin to paper-based routines, with greater efficiency and portability. Acrobat 8 provides simple yet secure solutions for collaboration and exchanging documents with clients and other legal professionals using PDF (Portable Document Format), which has become the de facto standard for digital documents in the legal community.

Portable Document Format (PDF)
Refined and perfected over 15 years, Adobe PDF lets legal professionals capture and view information—from any application, on any computer system—and share it with anyone around the world. PDF files can be viewed and printed on any computer system—Macintosh, Microsoft® Windows®, UNIX®, and many mobile platforms. Adobe PDF files look just like original documents, regardless of the application used to create them. Paper documents scanned to PDF look just like their hard-copy counterparts and can be quickly turned into computer-searchable files. Unlike PDF files, documents scanned to Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) lose their original appearance when converted to searchable files. When it comes to long-term file retention, the PDF/Archive standard (PDF/A) enables organizations to archive documents electronically in a way that ensures preservation of content for later retrieval and reuse with a consistent and predictable result over an extended period of time in the future. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has approved PDF/A as an archive standard. The federal judiciary’s Case Management and Electronic Case Files (CM/ECF) system has been implemented in almost all district and bankruptcy courts. CM/ECF allows the courts to have case file documents in electronic format and to accept filings via the Internet. CM/ECF systems are now in use in 89% of the federal courts: 89 district courts, 93 bankruptcy courts, the Court of International Trade, and the Court of Federal Claims. Most of those courts accept electronic filings. More than 27 million cases are on CM/ECF systems, and more than 200,000 attorneys and others have filed documents via the Internet.
