Onit Session: 502 - Innovation in Law Department Operations: Enterprise Legal Management for the 21st Century
Track: Innovation in Legal Service Delivery

E-billing and legal spend management technology has been around for nearly 20 years yet legal departments still think  “innovation" means tracking matters electronically and managing legal spend. This decades old technology does not serve the evolving needs of today’s legal department.  

This session will highlight:

  • Benchmarks, metrics and analysis of current trends driving innovation and transformation in legal operations and performance management.
  • Why systems of record are not enough to drive operational improvements and why traditional enterprise legal management (ELM) systems fall short
  • The evolving role of legal and why process, workflow and collaboration are critical for legal departments to succeed.
  • The existing ELM vendor landscape and why e-billing and matter management technology only represent a fraction of a legal department’s needs.
