March has ended, April is here. And wow did we have a busy and fun month, full of informative trainings, updates to the platform, and new eFiling courts.
Here are some of the things that happened over the last month:
Who uses One Legal at your firm? Is it just you or are there another dozen users linked to your account? Previously, only the administrator of your firm’s account could see that information. Now, every user can see who else is using the firm’s account—so they know who to beg for help finishing those filings before the deadline.
All users can also see who the designated administrator of the account is. This lets each member know who to talk to about changes or other requests. Improve collaboration with your team through better visibility into their established filing roles.
A huge thank you to all who attended our first ever virtual conference for legal support professionals! One Legal Live 2018 was a big success. Attendees got to hear from more than 20 different experts in their corner of the industry during 15 unique sessions. Discussions about court rules, best practices for filing, becoming tech savvy, being a responsible paralegal, overcoming procrastination, and more helped us dig deeper into our profession.
One Legal was also excited to release The State of Legal Support in 2018, the first industry report focused wholly on legal support staff, their experiences, and their positioning in the field. Compiling more than 2,000 responses with in-depth research into the current atmosphere, we hope this publication is useful for you and your colleagues.
We can’t wait to see you next year!
