LexisNexis® Legal & Professional, a leading provider of content and technology solutions, announced today a “Legal Software Bill of Rights” which lists 10 rights that attorneys and legal professionals should expect from software designed for the business of law. The Bill of Rights is an aspirational document unveiled at ILTA’s 36th Annual Education Conference being held in Las Vegas. An accompanying report expands on the thinking behind the document and focuses on the most common problems associated with technology in the legal space; it articulates a vision for the path forward. A copy of the Bill of Rights can be found here.

“In some ways this is an indictment of everything that is wrong with the legal technology industry – and a call to action to reboot,” says Michael Lipps, vice president and managing director for the LexisNexis Business of Law Software Solutions (BLSS) business. “The legal industry is in the midst of dynamic change and as a community – customers, vendors and pundits – we need to collectively have an open dialogue about what’s working, what isn’t and what needs to change.”

The philosophy behind the Bill of Rights calls for software designed for the business of law to work the way lawyers and legal professionals work – especially in an increasingly mobile and time sensitive world. For example, the same simplicity and elegance we find in consumer technologies – from smart phones to online shopping – should be central to software developed for the legal space. Migration should be easy as well. There should be no question that the customer owns their data – whether it’s stored in the cloud or not. A week-long class should not be a prerequisite for gaining value from a software product.

LexisNexis is expressly committed to the legal software industry. Over the course of the last 15 months, LexisNexis has made investments in a “software center of excellence” in Cary, North Carolina, as part of its commitment to this Bill of Rights. The center of excellence brings together the vast depth and breadth of LexisNexis experience in the legal industry and has focused it on core software disciplines including product management, user experience design and customer research, along with traditional software engineering and development.
