The “Paper Problem” in Legal Sector

Welcome to 1960, don't check your calendars. Since we are talking about the legal sector, it seemed apt to turn the wheels of the time machine to at least half a century ago. Technology has changed our lives. Dare I say, improved? But there is one major sector which is clinging on to the early times with its complete jaw strength. Yes, legal sector, no points for guessing.
Imagine the times when people wrote letters to each other. Most of us haven't even experienced that period. But the legal sector is still in that era. Using methods and tools like a typewriter, MS Word, studying the heap files in physical paper form.

There is no denying the fact that Legal solutions are too expensive. And some of us can't even afford it. One of the biggest reason influencing the hefty fees of Lawyers are the ‘man labor’. Almost all the job is done manually in law firms which require hiring more people and also slows down the process considerably. The senior lawyers have multiple paralegals working under them. Their job is to search the paper files for information and document the case papers in a presentable and accurate format.
You don't need to be a tech savvy to figure out how to create digital documents and link files. But this step is supposed to be done by the client as a part of their records maintenance.

Ways to Handle the Paper Problem:  

During Legal Cases

The solution is pretty simple and has existed for decades. Use websites with dynamically linked HTML pages to maintain the records and documents of a case in a format that will provide maximum flexibility to the judge, lawyers as well as the client. Imagine having your entire files arranged like Wikipedia or any website you fancy.

For Clients

The solution for businesses is to maintain all your business information in the digital format. This will ease the job of a paralegal to a prominent extent and also give you the leverage as it will avoid all human errors.

Applications For Law Firms

Use applications like e-Discovery software like kCura which will manage the documents, litigation, and assist you with tracing the best path for your case. You can also appoint an application; Ross as your paralegal. Design applications to handle the unnecessary formatting of the documents. Make custom application of your firm and give the privileges to your client for maintaining their relationship with you through it.

Law Colleges

One of the major reason legal sector is lacking is that the professionals aren’t trained with technology. Incorporate the study of such applications and tools in the curriculum.

The only way to avoid all the redundant efforts is to stop taking those efforts. A lawyer’s degree should be more valuable than spending on old papers and files. Technology is ready to serve the legal sector. Let's ditch the pen and paper and make the legal process better. Startups Like are making the job easier for everyone. The idea is to leverage the technology as much as we can & get rid of the traditional way of paper work. We know it will take time, but this is the right time to choose the Legaltech.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 - Startup Catering to the Challenges in the Legal Sector

Legal sector in India has vastly been ill-famed by the media and television. One of the major problems faced by the legal sector is the amount of time taken to resolve a case. This stems multiple other problems like paying high and irregular fees to the lawyers and spending time because of multiple hearings.

The legal sector is definitely changing if not evolving with the time. It isn’t considered a ‘noble’ profession anymore. ‘Legal services’ have become merely ‘services’. These services are now included under the Consumer Protection Act, 1986. The number of Corporate cases is overshadowing the domestic cases. This was never the scenario in India. The type of cases which are definitely on the rise these days is Civil cases which are basically a legal dispute between two parties where the plaintiff (person or organization who filed the complaint) claims that the other party failed to perform the legal duty which it was obligated to.

Most of us lack the understanding of the most basic and customary practices. This prevents us from fully enjoying the scheme and welfare plan by the Government which is designed to benefit us. We miss on a large number of opportunities as we fail to complete the tedious process with efficiency.
