I first saw Legal Files in action when I attended an annual conference of the National Association of College and University Attorneys. I immediately realized how Legal Files’ capabilities would be immensely helpful to our legal department.
Valdosta State University, a public university in the University System of Georgia, has implemented Legal Files, the matter, document and workflow management application developed by Legal Files Law Manager Software, Inc., for its Office of Legal Affairs.
The new Legal Files system enables the university’s Office of Legal Affairs to work more efficiently, according to Chief Legal Affairs Officer Justin M. Arrington. “Our use of Legal Files is focused on contract management workflow and organizing emails and documents within each legal matter we manage, as well as tracking requests from different university departments. Legal Files serves as a centralized, electronic location for all our relevant legal data, but being able to generate reports on that data is what is most critical for our efficient operation,” he said.
The Office of Legal Affairs reports directly to the President and is responsible for providing support and advice to the President, administration, faculty and staff on a broad range of issues having legal significance. The Office of Legal Affairs is responsible for, among other duties, interpreting state and federal laws, formulating and issuing legal opinions, reviewing and/or drafting legal documents such as contracts and assisting with the formulation of policies.
