Learn more about student legal issues and legal software at NACUA Winter 2020
As an attorney or paralegal for a college or university, you encounter many unique legal situations and challenges. Your team handles standard fare like contracts and litigation. It also must deal with issues that range from diversity to student speech. To further complicate matters, you and your coworkers work with different departments, campuses and employees. Thankfully, events like NACUA (and robust legal case management software from vendors like Legal Files Software) can help you stay on top of everything.
What is the focus of the NACUA Winter 2020 Workshop?
From Jan. 30-31, legal professionals will converge on New Orleans for the NACUA Winter 2020 Workshop. The focus of this event will be on legal issues related to college and university students. Topics will include admissions, diversity, financial aid, Greek life and student speech. Thought leaders will discuss developments and trends related to balancing the needs of colleges and universities with the legal rights of students.
At this event, you can also find a wealth of legal software vendors, including Legal Files. Because purchasing in house legal matter management software is an investment, you want to do your homework. Comparison shopping allows you to learn what programs are available and which one is the best fit for your organization.
Finding the right legal software option for colleges and universities
Thinking about your college or university legal department’s needs should be your first step before selecting a matter management program. Begin by thinking about the types of matters and issues you regularly encounter. Each school is different, so while talking to other institutions can be helpful, it’s critical to consider your department’s workload and legal issues.
Sitting down with your coworkers is an excellent way to learn what to look for in legal software. When you do this, you might discover processes or tools that you never knew about. For example, you might find that a paralegal is using a spreadsheet to track matters, or an attorney is relying on handwritten notes. By discovering these hidden processes, you can be better equipped to find more effective software programs for your team.
