New Blog – The Digital Law Firm

Man drawing on a screen the diffusion of innovation curve with reference to the digital law firm.As we approach the mid-way point of 2016, for the first time in 20 years, the rate of technology adoption in UK law is showing real signs of increasing dramatically.

During the last 12 months the profession has seen tangible steps towards digital divorce, online dispute resolution and J-Codes for better budgeting.

Select Legal’s head of marketing, Joanne Hunter believes the main driver is the Government’s £700 Million investment in the UK Courts and Tribunal system and their edict to save £200 Million per year by 2019-20 by going digital. She believes this is having a knock-on effect on the industry as a whole encouraging law firms to raise their ‘digital game’ too. Select Legal Systems Limited has seen sales enquiries for their flagship legal practice management system, LAWFUSION, double during the last 6 months.

In her new blog entitled “The Digital Law Firm” Hunter explains, in her eyes, a true ‘digital law firm’ is a one that has embraced the four key corner pins of ‘digital technology’ as enablers for the business of practising law.  The enablers being – social, mobile, analytics and the cloud. Hunter also applies Rogers’ widely acclaimed market analysis tool ‘Diffusions of Innovation’  to the legal profession to review its rate of technology adoption.  Read the blog here.
