About the Instructor

About the Instructor


Hi, I'm Gerard. I've been fully paperless for almost four years now, and that's no mean feat. I'm a litigation lawyer and work with tens of thousands of documents every year, without using any paper. That includes attending court, arguing cases, and cross-examining witnesses. No paper. At home we're paperless too.

I set up the Paperless Academy to share my knowledge and experience with you, so come and join me on a course!
