LexisNexis, NetDocuments Launch New Email Service

Sunday, October 1, 2006 - 01:00

LexisNexis U.S. and NetDocuments have launched a new service that will allow law firms to better manage and archive email. With the addition of email management to NetDocuments from the LexisNexisdocument management system, law firms now have a single place to capture, store, organize, archive, and manage emails, documents and records.

The new service includes an innovative approach to synchronizing emails from Microsoft Outlook, without requiring invasive integration software injected into the email system, and without requiring network connectivity as other document management systems do. This new paradigm for capturing emails as records in a central records management repository becomes a simpler, user-friendly approach to email management for law firms of all sizes.

LexisNexis and Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet & Society are partnering to ensure that the next generation of law school graduates is equipped with new technology and electronic litigation tools, skills that are rarely included in law school curricula, according to Andrew Prozes, CEO of LexisNexis Group, and John Palfrey, executive director of the Berkman Center.

The Berkman Center and LexisNexis partnership will begin by defining the parameters of discussion: how to quantify technology's impact on the practice of law, what technology skills are an essential part of the legal profession, and how education can better prepare students for success in the marketplace. The eventual goal is creating recommendations on how next-generation law school curricula can preserve the fundamentals of critical thinking and legal history, while at the same time equipping graduates with technology training and skills.
