NATIONAL DOCKETING ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE, SAN ANTONIO, TX - October 7, 2014 – At the National Docketing Association Conference 2014 today, Law Bulletin Publishing Company (LBPC) announced that its JuraLaw® web-based national case, calendar and docket management SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) product now offers the most comprehensive collection of Illinois and New York state, federal and bankruptcy court calendar data available together in a single national calendaring solution. The Illinois coverage includes data from the Circuit Courts of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, Will and Winnebago Counties, the Illinois Supreme Court, the Illinois Appellate Court, the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission as well as the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court of the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit. The New York coverage includes the New York State Office of Court Administration information for all 62 counties as well as the U.S. District Court for the Eastern, Northern, Southern and Western Districts and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern, Northern, Southern and Western Districts.
JuraLaw receives the data and updates directly from the courts as often as they are available so that JuraLaw is as current and up to date as possible. As soon as new court data is received, JuraLaw’s team of experts, with over 120 years of combined experience, proof, verify, correct and format the data to ensure the information that is uploaded into JuraLaw is accurate and up to date.
When the new court information is loaded into JuraLaw, JuraLaw’s sophisticated algorithm-based system analyzes and precisely matches law firm case numbers to Illinois and New York court information. This superior case pattern number technology leaps far ahead of anything offered by competing docket management products, providing the most accurate match of law firms’ cases to court calendar and docket information.
Based upon feedback from docketing managers and managing attorneys in Illinois and New York respectively, Illinois case matches are automatically incorporated into JuraLaw and New York case matches are available for review before incorporation into the system. Due to the fact that Law Bulletin has developed strong relationships with court personnel in Illinois and New York as well as the fact that docket professionals from Illinois, New York and national law firms, large, medium and small, have played and continue to play important roles in the ongoing development of JuraLaw, JuraLaw can easily be integrated into the existing docketing processes and procedures in any law firm.
David Glynn, VP of Docket Management Technologies for LBPC, explains, “We closely studied how docket personnel work and included both current and potential customers in the creation of JuraLaw." JuraLaw will work in either a centralized or decentralized environment. JuraLaw offers a comprehensive, single solution that ensures consistency and accuracy of the firm’s docket. JuraLaw helps law firms track critical court calendar dates and deadlines and connects directly to Microsoft Outlook to populate lawyer and staff calendars. Over 100 reports are available to end-users. Multiple reminders for diary events eliminate the need for additional data entry. Docket entries can be made for cases and diary events can be associated with each docket entry to provide a complete case history. Most importantly, JuraLaw is easy to use.
In addition to the Illinois and New York court data, JuraLaw integrates court rules from across the nation to automatically create calendar events. With the most comprehensive collection of New York and Illinois court data in a single docketing solution as well as the availability of court rules, we look forward to working with docketing professionals to implement JuraLaw to increase operational efficiencies and minimize malpractice risks in their law firms.
JuraLaw will be demonstrated at the National Docketing Association Conference on Monday and Tuesday, October 7th & 8th.
