Case management software provides lawyers with tools to manage essential information on clients and legal cases, such as calendars, documents and contacts. It also allows lawyers within the same law firm to share information easily.
The software features contact storage, case management, time and billing, calendaring and docketing, time tracking and document storage. Some versions of the software offer the option of connecting with personal digital assistants to keep schedules and calendars up-to-date. Case management programs differ in compatibility depending on the features and firm size. Additionally, there are programs that are Web-based and provide lawyers 24/7 access to all features on any device, such as MyCase.
