Today’s paralegals are expected to do much more for their clients and attorneys in much less time.
In this program, we will discuss simple strategies of how paralegals, can use current tools that they already have to become more efficient while at the same time reducing errors/malpractice risk, and providing a higher, more personalized level of service.
Just like with the advent of word processing software, there is a way that paralegals, can use advances in technology to their advantage to deliver valuable traditional legal work to their firm. We will discuss how the concepts of growth and scale are not mutually exclusive when building a law practice, and how technology can be used to enable them to go hand-in-hand. Understanding and navigating the many technology options out there today can be an overwhelming process. During this discussion, we will provide a framework for evaluating potential tools that may benefit your firm.
