Document Assembly Technology: What it Can Do for Your Practice & How to Evaluate the Players
1 CLE (NLS) - Live Webcast Only
Document assembly (DA) has had a huge impact on the legal world, and it is one of the most disruptive technologies of the last 25 years. If you are in the business of producing complex documents, then its benefits are significant. Properly deployed, DA technology can exponentially decrease drafting time and costs, increase accuracy and profitability, be used as a teaching tool, and shared with others. In the era of COVID-19, DA’s biggest benefit may be that it allows lawyers who may know very little about Microsoft Word to generate complex, perfectly formatted documents with no assistance from staff. The value and impact of DA increases proportionately with the complexity of the documents being automated. However, there are many competing platforms, and the options are difficult to compare against one another. This seminar will help you deal with that reality by providing a checklist of functional criteria to consider when evaluating DA platforms. Like most legal tech categories, there’s no single DA product that is the best option for every situation (vendor claims to the contrary notwithstanding). If you are trying to choose a platform for your practice or understand the benefits, don't miss this discussion.

Avoiding Malpractice: The Good, The Bad & the Ugly of Legal Technology
1 CLE / 1 E - Live Webcast Only
Legal technology is a double-edged sword in that it can cause malpractice or it can guard against it. Learn how to avoid common mistakes while using technology to your advantage by building malpractice avoidance procedures into your workflow. There is no prerequisite level of technical acumen necessary to understand these concepts, and almost all of them will improve your office’s overall efficiency, level of client service and profitability. Most of the top causes for malpractice and grievance issues are related to organization, communication and law office management. As such, they are largely preventable.
