What is Law Practice Management Software?

Law practice management software is designed to handle law firm clients and case records, bookkeeping and billing, deadlines, appointments and schedules, computer files and to assist with compliance requirements such as with courts electronic filing solutions and document retention policies.

Because law colleges do not teach students the business skills to operate a law firm, many firms use software to simplify the learning curve and decrease clerical mistakes. The American Bar Association (ABA) has identified that deadline and calendar related blunders account for most legal malpractice claims. Therefore, law organizations need to invest in programs to prevent such claims. In fact, the ABA has a full division devoted to law office management, of which software and related programs are a vital part of its mission delivery. Many state bar associations offer discounts and help to their members for using software. The chief function of law practice management software is to enable a law firm to function smoothly.
