Law Practice Management Software
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Law practice management software is software designed to manage a law office's case and client records, billing and bookkeeping, schedules and appointments, deadlines, computer files, compliance with document retention policies, and compliance with courts' electronic filing systems. Because law schools do not generally teach new attorneys the business skills to run a law office, many offices have turned to technology to ease the learning curve and reduce clerical errors. The American Bar Association has found that calendar and deadline related mistakes account for most legal malpractice claims. Therefore, an initial investment in software tools can yield long term savings in defending against such claims. In fact, the ABA has an entire section devoted entirely to law office management, of which software and related programs are an increasingly important part of its mission delivery. Many state bar associations also provide assistance and discounts to their members for such software. The main purpose of these programs is allow a law firm to run more smoothly.
