What is Law Practice Management Software?

Law practice management software is created to manage law firm clients and case records, accounting and billing, deadlines, appointments and schedules, computer files and to aid with compliance requirements such as with courts electronic filing systems and document retention policies.

Because law colleges do not teach attorneys the business skills to run a law organization, many companies use technology to shorten the learning curve and minimize clerical errors. The American Bar Association (ABA) has identified that deadline and calendar related blunders account for most legal negligence claims. Therefore, law firms need to spend on programs to avoid such claims. In fact, the ABA has a full section devoted to law office management, of which software and related programs are a critical part of its mission delivery. Many state bar associations present discounts and support to their members for using software. The main function of law practice management software is to enable a law organization to function smoothly.
